Newcastle Winger In Possible Loan Deal

8 years ago

While we all wait anxiously to see if the line is crossed by a new recruit to St.James’ Park.

There is a chance that it is not only Yohan Cabaye who may leave in the near future.

The player in question is Gabriel Obertan who has been more or less invisible in recent times, with vague claims of carrying an injury from time to time.

Today though there are claims in the Mirror that Obertan may be on his way to Nottingham Forest on loan.

At the age of 24 and a mile away from the first team despite Newcastle’s relatively small squad, it is a deal that could suit all parties, hopefully.

Very rare moments of ability have been lost in the winger’s general play, with the player seemingly intimidated by the burden of playing in front of big crowds and having a mental block on using his biggest asset, pace, to any positive effect.

It is claimed though that Obertan is on £35,000 a week and for any deal to go through, Newcastle will have to continue to pay a decent part of that wage.
