Luuk de Jong has come in on loan to Newcastle to play games, and if you are Newcastle’s second striker at the moment – Papiss Cisse – the Senegal International has to be wondering how many game he’ll get through the end of the season, and we could even see Papiss leave today on loan to another club.
Papiss Cisse – could leave today?
That would be a big mistake from Newcastle’s viewpoint, but there’s news that could happen today.
And fringe players like Sylvain Marveaux and Gabby Obertan could also leave, as it’s now obvious that neither Frenchman is in Alan Pardew’s plans for Newcastle’s future.
There are clubs interested in taking Papiss Cisse and Marveaux on loan, and some French clubs interested in Gabby Obertan.
Of those three players the only one we could keep today is Papiss Cisse, and that’s because our biggest weakness now that Cabaye has gone is scoring goals, and to let a striker leave today would be a little ludicrous.
And with Cabaye leaving and not being replaced – Dan Gosling will be staying on Tyneside until he becomes a free agent in the summer – and then he will leave the club.
But he could see some playing time through the end of the season.
We really have to hope for some good news on the transfer front today – but the truth is the outlook is not particularly good.
