It’s been a fustrating transfer window for Alan Pardew, the Newcastle United manager has only signed Loic Remy and sold 5 players, now its got even worse him as one of his most important and influentual players (Yohan Cabaye) has had a offer of 10/12million come through from north London giant’s Arsenal.
Cabaye refused to play for the first two games and went on strike after the Arsenal offer came through, he played for the first time of the season coming on as a sub in the 1-0 victory over Fulham, receiving a mixed response from the home support.
When asked if playing meant he was staying he replied with, ”it doesn’t because the window is open until 11pm (on monday) and all our players are vulnerable.”
After a few more questions Pardew comfirmed that no more bids have come through for the French midfielder, ”We’ve had no other bids yet otherwise we won’t be able to replace him and we won’t sell then”
Pardew went on to say he understood the mixed reception, ”I thought the fans got it right – it was a mixed reaction, some were saying to him Newcastle comes first, and others were just glad to see him because he is a great player, and I think that’s about right.”
Do you think Yohan Cabaye would be a good addition to the current Arsenal squad or should they look at different options?
