With Newcastle very likely to bring in new players next month to improve our squad it’s likely that some of our fringe players will be allowed to leave.
One of these could be Sylvain Marveaux who has been at Newcastle over four years now and has never really made it at the club.
Sylvain was signed as a free agent in the summer of 2011 on a five year contract and could be sold for a nominal fee next month.
Manu Riviere – striker could leave next month
However one player who could also be leaving is striker Emmanuel Riviere who has been out injured for a while this season with a knee injury and had a tough time of it last season in his first term at Newcastle.
He was signed at the same time as Remy Cabella who is on loan at Marseille and will be signed permanently but them next month for around £6M.
We were surprised that Cabella wasn’t given another season to succeed on Tyneside and therefore it’s likely that Newcastle will allow Manu to leave with at least one new striker coming into the club in January.
The news in the French press is that Lille are interested in the striker but that his wages will be a problem.
There’s a possibility that we could send him out on loan next month because with Mitrovic, Cisse, Perez and de Jong on board and another striker very likely to come in – there will not be many opportunities for Riviere in the first team.
Other players who could be leaving us next month include Shane Ferguson, Yoan Gouffran and Mike Williamson and the club loosens up on the wage bill to allow new players to come in.
We also have to leave some room in the 25 players we nominated for the Premier League earlier this season.
