Newcastle Target Desperate To Leave French Club


Aly Cissokho has been desperate to leave Olympique Lyonnais for the last year, and of course Newcastle were more than interested in this French International left-back last summer, and almost signed him.

Aly Cissokho – desperate to leave Lyon

Aly was never capped at any of the French youth levels,  and only made one full appearance for France in August of 2010, when the 6′ tall defender was called up to the team by new manager Laurent Blanc,  for the friendly match against Norway, and he played the full game.

Newcastle, Naples, Inter Milan and other clubs have been linked with the Blois-born Frenchman, who is of Senegalese descent.

Lyon have been wanting €10M for their player, but that fee will hardly attract too many clubs, and he is getting his lawyers involved, as he had this to say to the French media:

“To be in line with the ambitious career that I set for myself, I decided to entrust the management of my interest to lawyers who are experienced in contract negotiations in the football world.”  “It gives me the guarantee of a working professional representation and greater rigor. “

Cissokho is using  a firm called 3A,  and hopes to leave Olympique Lyonnais in this transfer window, and his representatives have already met officials of Lyon, to discuss the future of their client, and especially his transfer fee.

If his fee was reduced to around €5M, and Newcastle fail to get Mathieu Debuchy in from Lille, the 24 year-old could then possibly become a target again of Newcastle – maybe.

What do you think?

    Just replying from an earlier thread, your comment on the bad taste adds that Ed is allowing to run is really a reflection on yourself.

    Most site adds nowadays are targeted adds they use you recent browsing history to target you with suitable adds which says your computer has been linked to sex/dating sites recently.

    If it’s not you maybe you should be asking the wife/girlfriend/boyfriend, children what they have been looking at. 😉 🙂 🙂

    The fact we appeared to be linked in the past I think he may well be one of the players we end up signing.

    Same old shite. Picking a team from players we dont have.
    I have Debuchy over Cisokho any day. Debuchy likes to get forward and would create even more support when attacking.

    Cissokho has the potential to be the best left-back in the world. He’s just had a dip in form recently. He’s got the ability.

    It’ll be a better signing than Debuchy due to the age difference. More than 2 years is a big difference.

    Get him signed up.

    @Davey

    Ellia is just another Obertan…loads of pace but runs into a dead end and has no end product.

    I think we are in desperate need of 5 players! A CB, LB/RB, DM, Creative Mid and Striker.

    Guthrie was very important last season when cabaye was out and now he has gone and we have so many more games….Cabaye needs to play higher up the pitch to be more affective in a Xavi kinda role.

    IN: Debuchy (6m)
    Douglas (5m)
    Anita (5m)
    Amalfitno (free)
    Hoilett (free)
    Luke De Jong (10m)

    Total: 26m

    Out: Simpson (4m)
    Best (3m)
    Guthrie (free)

    Total: 7m

    Total spend: 19m

    ——————Krul—————–
    Debuchy–STaylor-Colo–Santon
    ———–Tiote—–Anita———–
    HBA——–Cabaye——–Hoilett
    ——————-Cisse—————

    Ooo and by the way according to SSN the unwashed down the road are now after Anita…..it seems Graham Carr needs to take some restraining orders out on these other scouts following him round making their job easier!

    Wow, Lee Ryder is being a right blockhead against Chris Conway, i want to slap him.
    He’s so repulsive at times in the way he answers questions on his webchat and replys to some tweets.
    Someone fire the bloke, he’s a shite journo aswell.

    Interesting interview with the silver fox where he says he plays Yo behind Tiote sometimes, for his distribution on counter attacks etc.,

    Iv not seen this interview when was it? That seems mental to me, but again thats why id like someone like Anita whos passing range is better than Tiote’s.

    Doesn’t seem like a winger is prio this year, and i agree with that, probably one of the last places i’d improve right now.

    Lee Ryder gets less right that all the southern journo’s…he is a total waste of space.

    We need to use cabaye behind the striker….will bag a lot of goals and assists.

    I think we need a pirlo, alonso, etc type player to sit next to tiote and spray the ball around. The best young talent is verratti at Pescara….but he is linked with juvetus and psg.
