Newcastle Midfielder Could Be On His Way

25 year old Senegal International midfielder could leave Newcastle before this coming Sunday for Marseille and there is a report in the Marseille local newspaper La Provence are hoping to that can be accomplished before next Sunday when the French League kicks of its season.

Henri has had a tough time of it since he arrived from Bordeaux for £5M last January and has hardly been given a chance in the Newcastle first team since he arrived.

Certainly since Rafa Benitez arrived in mid-March to try to save the club from relegation, Saivet has not played one minute in the first team and he is not in Rafa Benitez’ plans for the future of Newcastle.

Henri has made only four appearance for Newcastle since last January and it is best for him to move on and try to get his career back on track in France.

He has been the victim to a large extent of changing managers at Newcastle, although even Steve McClaren did not play him much in the Newcastle first team after he arrived at the start of the year.

Henri has been  another poor acquisition by Chief Scout Graham Carr and company and he will have been at Newcastle a little more than six months.

Rafa Benitez is currently overhauling the Newcastle squad and 8 players have been brought in and 9 senior players have so far left the club.
