Newcastle Linked With £5m Move For Gueida Fofana
Latest transfer link for Newcastle today is midfielder Gueida Fofana, a 22 year old defensive midfielder at Lyon.
The French youth international can also play at centre-back and has established himself in the French side after moving from Le Havre in 2011.
Breaking this particular story is the Mike Ashley controlled S****** D***** News and we usually treat their increasingly annoying attempts to put Newcastle players in the shop window with disdain.
However, the profile of Gueida Fofana looks a lot more plausible as an Ashley transfer target than the pointless succession of stories from SD News, such as those that have linked us with Lescott and Samba in the last 24 hours. Needless to say though, the Ashley website is counting this as an exclusive, which can only mean so much when almost every article they publish claims to be…exclusive.
With only 2 league goals to his name for Lyon, Fofana would clearly not be helping out Remy too much in the goalscoring stakes but this is one bit of transfer speculation I will be keeping half an eye on.
