Newcastle Striker Deal Now Looking Likely


Newcastle have had a €750K offer for Bordeaux striker Yoan Gouffran turned down, but with the French side indicating they would be willing to sell the player for around €1M – a deal is very likely – and that’s especially true when you think Yoan will become a free agent in June – and he could leave Bordeaux for nothing.

Yoan Gouffran – could soon become a Newcastle player

There are reports in France (where else?) that Bordeaux President Jean-Louis Triaud has said he would likely accept an increased offer of €1.2M.

Yoan can hit the back of the net – and he has 12 goals in 27 matches for Bordeuac this season and last season he hit 14 goals in 37 appearances, and with his speed he would be a decent acquisition for the Magpies.

At the moment we have only Shola Ameobi and Papiss Cisse as recognized strikers,  so it would seem worth while to pay around €250K more to get this lad on Tyneside – and he could also be available for our next game at Aston Villa next Wednesday – which is another relegation 6 pointer.

We hope Newcastle can move quickly to get the 26 year-old former France U21 striker, because we definitely need more players this month who can score goals.

    very good player to fill a gap for now…at that price you can’t go wrong.

    If he proves himself he can be a permanent fixture next year, if not a decent a squad player with a better player coming in during the summer

    All this positive energy flying around here today is really starting to worry me???

    This is not how it works under Ashley, something always has to go wrong and depress us all.

    Waiting for breaking news on Sky Sports News that He’s gone and burned SJP to the ground

    Team for Villa match, hopefully…

    ——————–Krul——————–
    Debuchy—-Mbiwa—-Colo—-Santon
    ——————Sissoko——————
    ————-Cabaye—-Anita————-
    —-Marveaux—-Cisse—-Gouffran—-

    Has anyone seen Wilfried Bony who plays for Vitesse? Impressive enough stats – 16 foals in 18 games this season. Could be the long term solution to the Ba situation.

    JB…You ever thought about going into motivational speaking? 🙂

    I know what you’re saying though, but I suppose at some point they have to get a deal done, it’s hardly been a quick deal.

    +1 for Wilfrid Bony, but the only link I have seen for him is a suggestion on F365’s alternative top 10 targets. People journo’s havent linked us with, who they think we should be linked with. I would love him to come to us, but it isn’t going to happen.

    Kyo – People said the same to me mate. I wouldn’t worry about it. Conspicuous by their absence.

    Sissoko out of the squad for Wednesdays game against PSG.

    I believe he will sign for us in THIS window.

    Toulouse are forcing the sale so Sissoko is likely to sign this window.
