Newcastle Squad Clearance Continues With Bid For Midfielder

7 years ago

Only 24 hours after confirmation that James Tavernier is off to Wigan, it is revealed this morning that Panathaikos expect to complete a deal of around £300,000 for Newcastle’s Mehdi Abeid.

The midfielder was a star man for the Greek side whilst on loan, scoring double figures in terms of goals, including 9 in the league despite only starting 25 games.

Abeid helped his on loan side to domestic cup success as well as qualification for the early stages of the Champions League via a four team play-off.

Now the Journal though have reported that rather than getting a chance with United, Mehdi Abeid is expected to join Panathinaikos for pre season training with the transfer deal to be confirmed shortly.

The Greek club’s players are returning this weekend for fitness tests and Abeid is one of those who is expected to be there.

The midfielder turns 22 before the start of the season and may just be finding his feet in the professional game, though that now looks very unlikely to be happening at St.James’ Park.
