I can't stop listening to that advert. It's totally irrelevant but I just thought I'd share.
Anyway, Massadio Haidara, a Nancy left back is also rumoured to be about to sign, Moussa Sissoko has been linked repeatedly with Newcastle and it's now not even funny how much their scouting system relies on Ligue 1.
Football365 reported the 'capture' of Yanga-Mbiwa (above), which sounds a little racist to me but the Montpellier defender is a £6.7million signing who the Toon Army will surely hope is better than Mike Williamson. If he isn't they plan to draw some eyes on a wheelie bin and put it on top of a remote controlled car.
Where once it seemed that Graham Carr had set up the most brilliant of scouting networks the game had seen in recent years, it now looks an awful lot like he just lives in France and randomnly suggests players he thinks are alright from the TV to Pardew. It's either that or Pardew is getting Ultimate Team confused with real life. THEY DON'T ALL HAVE TO BE FROM THE SAME LEAGUE MATE
