Times Sport are supposedly reporting that Newcastle United have lodged a bid for Marseilles’ winger/striker Andre Ayew for around £7M.
Andre Ayew – £7M bid lodged by Newcastle?
This would be consistent with what happened over the weekend, with Joe Kinnear taking in the Valenciennes – Marseilles game on Saturday night, when Andre played the whole game for Marseilles.
And with the transfer window having only 7 days to run, Newcastle will need to get their bids in early, since we’ve seen it takes time, a lot of time for Newcastle to negotiate any deal – so we have to hope this news is accurate.
But Marseilles are said to want around £10M for the 23 year-old, who has been capped 43 times for Ghana and scored 13 times in 45 games for Marseilles last term – and looks a very decent player.
We hope this news is true, as Geordie fans need some good news this week regarding Newcastle United – and maybe we can also hammer Morecombe on Wednesday night in the League cup? :D.
