Gouffran To Sign For Newcastle Tomorrow


There’s news coming through that Newcastle are expected to complete the signing of 26 year-old Bordeaux striker Yoan Gouffran tomorrow, with the player himself breaking the news.

Yoan Gouffran _7

Yoan Gouffran – on his way to take medical at Newcastle

The 26-year-old has announced on his official Twitter account, that he will be joining Newcastle, and it’s thought the deal is around €1.5M – which is £1.2M – and it’s a great price for the Magpies, because Yoan’s contract runs out in June at Bordeaux.

Gouffran was gracious in his thanks to Bordeaux and is excited to be joining such a famous club as Newcastle:

“Big thanks to everyone who has supported me through the good times and bad times. I thank the leadership of the club and the staff for helping me grow.” 

“I need a new challenge and therefore I hope that you respect my choice. I will follow all the results of the Girondins (Bordeaux).”  “Tomorrow I will be a new player of Newcastle and I am proud. Thanks to everyone….kisses.”

We have to think that tomorrow will be an unveiling of players who have signed for the club – we reckon that’s four by the latest count – and it will give the squad and the manager – and of course the fans – a huge boost going into the last 15 games of the season – but we have to pick up the points starting next Tuesday night at Villa Park – and hopefully climb up that league table.

Today’s been a  good day for Newcastle United – and that’s an understatement.

Howay the Lads!!

    Even though I don’t particularly rate anything other than his pace, I hope he comes here and scores a hatfull (I tipped Cisee to fail, so what do I know?)

    Apparently they are fitting a turnstile at the medical centre and new players have to take a ticket and wait for their number to be called out.

    Absolutley thrilled with Mapou signing, he really is top, top class and a brilliant signing.

    If we sign Gouffran, Haidara and Sissoko too I’ll wet my pants with sex wee – don’t worry, I’ll make sure I clean myself up before going to work.

    Colo I think will be gone. But never mind. Still, would like to know if he had a legitimate reason (someone dying, terrible degenerative illness stuff like that) before I decide whether to get the wallpaper photo of me and him off my phone for good. I was itching to get Dreamboat on there but now there are two…choices….choices….:)

    Never thought we would sign two defenders of Champions league quality. We are quite privileged to have Mbiwa, Debuchy and hopefully Colo all in the same defense. Not to mention the potential signing if Sissoko which would be top notch.

    Can’t believe you are all getting excited. Ashley wont be buying anyone, we will be relegated, Ashley will sell all of our players and….oh, we’ve signed two top French defenders? Debuchy and Mbwia?

    I see. Give me a minute and I’ll come up with a new spin on it.

    Not hanging about but great news. A bit late, but well done boys at the top…quality player.

    Post number 31 is exactly right. Just hoping that’s Sissoko signs and plays on Saturday against a poor Villa team.

    Great news! Hope Colo stays as it will be +1 -1 quality CB. We need our captain for the rest of the season make no mistake!

    Will gouffran be the only striker?

    How long have we waited for a CB please!!!! And LB cover too.
