Revised Newcastle United Europa League Squad

Revised Newcastle United Europa League Squad

In one of the worst kept secrets, we have added three players to our Europa Cup squad for the finale of the 2012/13 competition.

The players added are Massadio Haidara, Moussa Sissoko and Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa.

Yoan Gouffran misses out because he has already played in the competition for Bordeaux and Mathieu Debuchy misses out because of a little known rule which only allows one player to play in two European competitions in a season.

Mbiwa also playing in the Champions League for his former club mean't it was a choice between the two players.

The fact that Mbiwa is a more versatile player in a number of positions seems to have got him the nod.

Leaving our squad are Demba Ba, Mehdi Abeid, Brad Inman, Dennis Knight, Conor Newton and Xisco.
