talkSPORT is reporting today that Newcastle will be ready to sell winger Gabby Obertan in the summer.
Gabby Obertan – will leave Newcastle in summer
Gabby has played 47 times for Newcastle with two goals since joining us from Manchester United in the summer of 2011, and lately he has found it hard to even make the bench, since the five Frenchmen arrived in January.
And it’s hardly surprising the Frenchman, who turned 24 last month, just wants to play regularly, which is the major reason he left the Red Devils almost two years ago, after playing only 28 times in two seasons for the Manchester powerhouse.
Newcastle paid £3M to Manchester United for the winge almost two year ago, and the club will be looking to get that amount back for the Frenchman, who is now expected to leave in the summer, and probably return to the French Ligue 1.
Obertan has made only three starts in the Premier League this season, and that’s when Newcastle were really short of players in the November through January time-frame – so the future does not look too bright for the French U21 International on Tyneside.
Newcastle are expected to bring in a striker, center-back and central midfield player to augment the squad this summer – and they may also unload some other fringe players before September.
