Mehdi Abeid: Failed to make the desired impact at Newcastle and was loaned to St

The French youngster has failed to make the expected impression at St James' Park since arriving in 2011 and reports have said he will be shown the door this summer.

St Johnstone are interested in a permanent deal for Abeid after he spent the second half of last season on loan in Scotland but they have yet to be told if they will be able to sign the former Lens player.

And Wright is keen to discover in the near future if there will be the option as he prepares his squad for their Europa League second round qualifiers against either Crusaders or Rosenborg later in July.

Wright said in the Daily Record: "Contrary to some reports, Mehdi has not been released. We need an answer soon.

"We would want to have him up to speed for the Europa League."

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
