Transfer Rumours

Henri Saivet passes medical – St Etienne set to announce move

3 years ago

Henri Saivet has now passed his medical at St Etienne.

RMC Sport say that the midfielder will be announced officially as a St Etienne player later this afternoon.

The Newcastle midfielder will be joined at the Ligue 1 club by Jordan Veretout, the two midfielders both set to sign loan deals with neither deal containing a trigger for a permanent deal, according to RMC Sport.

City Hall Gifts -

Little by little Rafa Benitez is nibbling away at his squad which is big on numbers, with Kevin Mbabu also going out on loan earlier today – the 21 year old joining Young Boys.

In Rafa’s five months at St James Park, Henri Saivet has not managed to play a competitive minute of football under the Newcastle boss and Sunday brought claims from L’Equipe that St Etienne were willing to pay half of his reported 200,000 euros (approx £172,000) a month wages.

Saivet hasn’t been included in any of Rafa’s matchday squads so far this season.
