Alan Pardew: Has been linked with move for Frenchman Imbula

Reports in France say Newcastle's chief scout travelled to watch the 20-year-old midfielder in action for Guingamp last week.

Magpies boss Alan Pardew has already shown his inclination for talent from across the channel, bringing five signings to Tyneside in January to take the French contingent to 10.

But Belgian-born Imbula, who is contracted at Guingamp until 2015, says there is no foundation to the transfer talk.

The youngster, who has previously been linked with Arsenal and Chelsea, said: "I am trying to finish the season strongly.

"I have a contract until 2015 so let's see what will happen. Guingamp is my club and they will have their say.

"Newcastle are in the Premier League, you are talking about a big club, but nothing is done. It is only paper talk."

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
