Yoan Gouffran: Closing on a move to Newcastle

Yoan Gouffran: Closing on a move to Newcastle

Gouffran confirmed via Twitter on Tuesday evening that he was heading out of Bordeaux and into St James' Park.

The 26-year-old forward has now arrived in the North East and made his way to Newcastle's training ground.

Should he sail through medical tests, Gouffran will then be clear to put pen to paper on a long-term contract.

Haidara will also be hoping that his examinations pick up no problems, with the 20-year-old defender looking forward to testing himself in the Premier League.

Should the pair make a move to England they will strengthen the French influence at St James' Park, with Alan Pardew having dipped into the Ligue 1 ranks on a regular basis of late.

Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa made a move from Montpellier on Tuesday and has joined the likes of Hatem Ben Arfa, Yohan Cabaye, Sylvain Marveaux and Mathieu Debuchy on Tyneside.
