Newcastle’s small squad have proved they are inadequate when it comes to the Premier League and our form over the last couple of months – we have 7 points from our last 12 league games, it looks like we will be fighting relegation through the end of the season.
Mathieu Debuchy – five year deal at Newcastle
And add to the bad form that Demba Ba is likely to join Chelsea – if he can pass a medical today – and yesterday was hardily a good day for Newcastle fans.
Newcastle started the season with only three experienced strikers and we’ll have two if Demba Ba moves – which looks almost certain.
Newcastle have three strikers lined up to replace the Senegal striker, if they can get one of them though the door, but of course we’ll still be short of a striker since most Premier league clubs have four experienced strikers ion their ranks.
Loic Remy seems top of the list and Newcastle’s scouting team say he would be a great buy – even at £11M – and next in line seems to be 23 year-old Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang of St Etienne, and there were reports they may go after former target Modibo Maiga, who is at West Ham, but not looking very good for the London club.
And Newcastle will also try to bring a center-back in this month, to strengthen a position where like striker – Newcastle only have three experienced center-backs.
Mathieu Debuchy only has to pass his medical today, and he will become a Newcastle player, and he was seen sitting beside his pal Yohan Cabaye last night and will sign a five year deal at Newcastle.
From the look of Newcastle last night, we seem to have lost a lot of confidence in the last couple of months, and even with Yohan Cabaye and Steven Taylor back – we think it’s going to be tough slog through the rest of the season.
