Opportunity For Newcastle To Get Gomis For Free

8 years ago

The never ending Bafetimbi Gomis transfer saga continues to fill column inches on both sides of the Channel.

Now in the last year of his contract it as assumed that Gomis would either make peace or move  on to a new club, which could potentially have been Newcastle United.

However, L’Equipe are now reporting that according to their information, Gomis is now intent on seeing out his contract and be available for free next summer, at least in terms of a transfer fee.

The French media giants further report that with no intention to renew his Lyon contract, he will not be forced out by Aulas, the owner.

Furthermore, Gomis apparently accepts he may be stuck in the reserves all year and make his chances of appearing at next year’s World Cup in Brazil non-existent.

This sorry tale mirrors Newcastle’s transfer ‘activities’ this summer and going on what L’Equipe are reporting, would you even want to sign this type of player when his contract runs out.

For my money you would simply be buying in problems but no doubt Mike Ashley would see ‘resale value’, especially when Newcastle were allegedly quoted £8m this summer.

Whatever the truth of the matter, it certainly doesn’t seem as though Gomis is busting a gut in wanting to come to Tyneside…or Newcastle doing the same in trying to sign him.
