Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa Agrees Loan Deal With Marseille According To French Media

7 years ago

French media are reporting that Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa’s nightmare stay at Newcastle could now finally be over, at least in the short-term.

It is reported that Mapou has agreed the details of am initial season long loan deal with Marseille, including wages, with it now awaiting Newcastle United giving the go ahead to the deal.

The 25 year old still has four years left on his United contract and has been given next to no chance at centre-back by Alan Pardew.

Foot Mercato report that the Newcastle player has concluded all arrangements with Marseille and despite apparently carrying an ankle injury at the moment, he will link up with the French club as soon as United give it the green light.

Marseille had a desperate start to the season and conceded five goals in their opening two matches to lowly Bastia and Montpellier, picking up only one point in the process.

They steadied the ship with a single goal win against Guingamp last weekend, for who Sylvain Marveaux played the full ninety minutes.

Newcastle are obviously desperate to get Mapou out of the club but whether a loan deal would lead to Mike Ashley allowing another incoming transfer(s) is open to question.
