Cabaye done! Gervinho on the brink.

Will this pair soon be lining up for Newcastle?
With all the talk of contract extensions etc it looks like NUFC have made their first, if not second breakthrough in the transfer market.

We heard about this yesterday from sources in France but it looks as though we have completed the signing Yohan Cabaye from Lille for a reported Β£4.4 million pounds. According to the Sunday Sun (the writer is quite accurate with these things) a deal was struck on Thursday with Yohan and we beat off competition from the likes of Arsenal to land one of the brightest talents in French football. Sounds great eh?

Well in more good news it seems were one step closer to signing Gervinho. We have apparently sorted out the wage issue and he now has to choose between us and another mystery club. Although I would imagine Cabaye joining and Cheik already here would be a big factor in all of this.

That was the more concrete stuff, but here are some other snippets of transfer gossip;

Apparently Newcastle are still confident of landing Kevin Gameiro but Valencia still remains his preferred choice. However we are the only club to have made an official bid for him so time will tell on that one.

Also in the Sun it says we have pulled out of the running to sign Danny Graham and Seb Larsson – Oh how Ed will be disappointed!

Oh and one more thing! Sunderland want Nigel Reo-coker πŸ˜€

There are other rumours going around aswell but I felt these were the most credible. So it looks like we are going to be making a double swoop for two of not just Lille’s brightest talents, but two of the brightest talents in France!

Howay the lads!

  5. Things are on the up with all these supposed signings but I hope we still do our best in keeping Barton and Nolan. Always a plus to keep experienced English players around, we don’t want to be like Arsenal do we with their lack of fight and grit.

  6. Asyraf, what ever happens with Barton we will still have the likes of Haprer, S.Taylor, Nolan and Shola in and around the squad with that English grit.

  9. Dan, hopefully Nolan doesn’t think of leaving if Barton went. I’m just getting a bit fond of Barton now with his performances πŸ˜‰ , though he had a abit of a slump after the comments he made.

  12. Ice your right πŸ˜‰ as for zog to have agreed the clubs would need to have agreed already, as I said earlier I wont believe owt till the club confirms it.
    All this twitter stuff is no different to Craig coozy on eds and for all we know he could be the same person

  13. Would it be a disaster if we cashed in on Nolan?

    is he gonna be in the first eleven?

    Would hate to think next season he would restrict Vuckic game time next season.

    Fair play to him he has been a warrior the last two seasons but its called evolution and we need to grow into something better and stronger
