'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Rennes reject M'Bia bid

Newcastle United's efforts to sign Cameroon International Stephane M'Bia from Ligue 1 side Rennes has hit a stumbling block after the French side revealed that no one would be sold until the summer, or be allowed to go out on loan.

The French side`s general manager Pierre Dreoss has asserted that the club will not listen to any offers in January regardless of the player or the fees.

'There will be no arrivals or departures, nor any loans, even after the departure of Wiltord," said Dreossi.

'We are not interested in the departure of any of our players.'

The Magpies yet again find themselves in a dark new place in terms of recruitment, as their other transfer target Lucas Neill has been barred from a move by his club West Ham United.

The Toon are yet to secure the free-transfer of former-Rangers attacker Peter Løvenkrands, and are apparently comfortable in waiting for their 'expensive' loan signings to arrive next week so that they can assess the situation.

This news, coupled with recent results on Tyneside are only going to deteriorate owner Mike Ashley's relationship with the fans, while Dennis Wise's role at the club is sure to be called into question again.

Hate to say I told you so... It was going to be one of two things, Mbia thinks he's destined for the very top, a top four club apparently, which you aren't at the moment. Also he is a bit of a money grabber, he was only ever interested in Everton in the summer because of the potential wage rise. He hasn't got the right attitude for Everton, and if you have any ambitions of getting yourselves out of the almighty rut you are in, i'd stay away too. You have quite a track record with players being paid over the odds and not delivering. He potentially could be one.
