Gouffran tweeted yesterday, “Tomorrow I will be a new player of Newcastle and I am proud. Thanks to everyone”.
While Graham Carr and Alan Pardew undoubtedly play their part…it looks increasingly like Yohan Cabaye is the Pied Piper of St.James’ park as he spreads the message that life is great on Tyneside.
RMC Sport have reported the following today;
‘A blow for Bordeaux. Yoan Gouffran makes his way to Newcastle and Matthieu Chalmé, his former playing colleague in Bordeaux, is not surprised to see him go, and even less so towards Newcastle, as he told RMC.
“The players want to experience something else. Cabaye, who is a friend, told me: ‘with Mathieu it’s great, with English facilities, English stadium’. It attracts. Gouffran told me before arriving at Bordeaux that England was attracting him, he has spent many years in Bordeaux.’
