Aurelien Chedjou: The centre-back is reportedly being eyed by a number of clubs

Alan Pardew is keen to continue improving his squad and could raid the French market again for the Cameroon international.

The 27-year-old is also on the radar of Spanish outfit Valencia although the Ligue 1 club are likely to demand a fee in the region of £12million.

And with the uncertainty surrounding the long-term future Fabricio Coloccini, Chedjou is seen as the Argentine's perfect replacement at St James' Park.

Speaking with Skyports.com, he said: "I am delighted when teams are being linked with me because it means that I am doing well.

"My agent (Gregory) Gelebert is working with the clubs interested in me, but I am relaxed about the situation.

"Newcastle have shopped in France before and with the likes of (Yohan) Cabaye and former Lille right-back (Mathieu) Debuchy there already, so I will be in a good environment.

"But there is nothing official with Newcastle just yet. It's all paper talk."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
