Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa: Set for talks with Newcastle

The 23-year-old French international is now set to fly into England next week for talks with the club's management to finalise a deal.

Sky Sports understand that the clubs have agreed an €8million (£6.7million) fee for the central defender.

Yanga-Mbiwa is one of the most highly-rated young defenders in Europe and already has three international caps to his name with France.

Newcastle have been working hard to bring in recruits this month, but thus far have only brought in Yanga-Mbiwa's international colleague Mathieu Debuchy.

Now the club have pressed ahead with a deal for Yanga-Mbiwa, after he was watched closely in recent weeks by chief scout Graham Carr.

After their failure to finalise a deal for Loic Remy, Newcastle will be desperate to push through Yanga-Mbiwa's deal.

suspect the review will conclude that Iago Aspas should never have been loaned out. Two hat-tricks in two Copa Del Rey games. One might say he has really turned a corner.
