Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa To Go On Loan If Newcastle Pay Large Part Of His Wages
Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa is set to go out on loan from Newcastle United, if the club pay a sizeable part of his wages.
RMC radio in France are reporting that Newcastle are in talks with Yoan Gouffran’s old club Bordeaux but it is taking time to haggle over the proportion of Mapou’s wages that United will subsidise.
Yet again against Sydney FC on Tuesday, the one-time youthful title winning captain of Montpellier found himself filling in at right-back, whilst this time Steven Taylor partnered Coloccini in the middle.
Last season the defender only started 17 Premier League matches and was never given a proper run in the team at centre-half.
If indeed Mapou goes out on loan and United pay for the privilege, it will be a crazy situation when United have such a small squad of capable players yet one who was such a great prospect when he arrived, isn’t given a proper chance to prove himself at St.James’ Park.
