Magpies set to take Albin Ebondo on loan

Magpies set to take Albin Ebondo on loan

Newcastle United are on the verge of signing Albin Ebondo from Ligue 1 side Toulouse on a six-month loan deal. It has emerged that the Magpies' will look to make the move permanent in the summer if the powerful right-back can impress Joe Kinnear during his tenure in the North-East.

The fee thought initially for Ebondo was £4 million, but now that these propositions have been quashed, one wonders where all the money went.

Newcastle United owner Mike Ashley had released an amount in excess of £10 million to Kinnear for transfers, and it is widely known that Shay Given's proposed move to Manchester City will earn the Tyneside club something in the region of £10 million. Together that makes a reasonable war-chest of £20 million, with another £6 million expected to arrive from the sale of Charles 'Le Sulk' N'Zogbia to Aston Villa.

With £26 million in the bag, who would Kinnear bring in?
