Mbiwa To Sign For Newcastle Today
Despite scare stories of Arsene Wenger and Arsenal highjacking the deal, it is now being reported in France that Montpellier’s Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa will sign this afternoon and then take his medical tomorrow in England (hopefully not London!).
French media RMCSport have just reported that;
‘Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa should be joining Newcastle in the next few hours.
According to our information, the Montpellier defender is expected on Tuesday in England to undergo his medical.
The French international would then sign a contract for five and a half years with the Magpies and reach an annual salary of 3.7 million euros.
The transfer of the French international is estimated at 8 million euros.’
Assuming there are no hitches with the medical then at long last Alan Pardew will be delivered the commanding centre-back he so publicly asked for in the summer, though in terms of extra goals the manager may be destined to be disappointed as the 23 year old has only scored four in his entire career.
