We wonder if Newcastle will let any of our current crop of players leave in the January transfer window, and one reason for that is that we could use the money to bring new players through the door next month.
Loic Remy – Marveaux used as bait?
And then there’s Demba Ba, and quite honestly it’s just a terrible situation for Newcastle to be in – that one of our top players and the top goalscorer with 10 goals in the Premier League can legitimately walk away from the team next month if some club offers £7M and triggers his release clause.
What’s wrong with that picture?
And the news this week is that Newcastle are thinking of maybe giving up on Sylvain Marveaux, and he could be shipped out to Marseilles in January, and maybe it’s a player plus cash exchange for their striker Loic Remy?
We have no inside information on this, but there have been repeated reports Newcastle are interested in Remy, and we have simply put two and two together – and hopefully arrived at four.
Sylvain has shown the best form of his career over the last month on Tyneside, but he is still behind players like Ben Arfa, Jonas Gutierrez and Gabby Obertan to get a starting position on one of the wings.
So it could be Newcastle are willing to let him go and since he arrived on a free transfer last year, Newcastle will make a profit on the deal
And maybe he will be offered in part exchange for Loic Remy, who Newcastle have been interested in since 2008, according to our archives.
It’s an interesting thought – at the very least.
