Newcastle may have more business in the transfer market than we expected this month, with news already breaking today, the second day of the transfer market, that Newcastle are in negotiations with Montpellier on their top midfielder Remy Cabella, who is 23.
Gabby Obertan – could be on his way out of Newcastle this month
But there is also news that Newcastle will try to unload at least two French midfielders, who simply have not made it on Tyneside, and have played very rarely for the Newcastle first team this season.
Sylvain had a decent season last term, especially in the first half, but this season he has been frozen out, and has yet to appear for the Magpies, while Obertan has played just 4 times.
Loan moves could be arranged for the two wingers with a view to a permanent move in the summer, or a permanent transfer is possible this month too.
Steven Taylor’s future is also not clear, but with Fab Coloccini out with a knee injury he picked up yesterday at the Hawthorns, Steven could get a start against Cardiff City in the FA Cup on Saturday, where a win would be very welcome for the lads, after surprisingly losing our last two league games 1-0.
Mathieu Debuchy is also out for the next three games following his straight red card yesterday, and it looks like Steven will come in at center-back and Mapou Yanga Mbiwa will fill in for Mathieu Debuchy at right back on Saturday.
We can understand why Steven is thinking of his future, but we’d be very surprised if he is not still at Newcastle when February rolls around.
