Mbiwa Still Linked With Loan Move

In what we have classed as stupidity for a while now, it looks like the need to shift Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa out of Toon could be gathering momentum again with the news that he is wanted by Bordeaux.

The French club has supposedly made a loan offer for the centre back, although with him thousands of miles away on tour in New Zealand with the first team squad, this did seem for a while that the club has seen sense and given him the chance to prove himself.

French radio station RMC have claimed that us and Bordeaux are talking about the ratio of Yanga-Mbiwa`s wages that we'd pay and again, this is daft.

A player who has been rarely used in his best position, a position that would surely have seen him in the French national squad at the recent World cup and one that he could have made his own on Tyneside for years to come but he's found himself messed about by the clueless Alan Pardew in being shifted around the pitch or stuck on the bench.

No wonder it's reported that he's keen for the move.

One sticking point in my mind is that Mike Ashley doesn't like losing money and he surely wont want to pay a player for wearing another teams colours, so a permanent deal may yet happen

The wost part about this transfer talk is that if Mbiwa is allowed to leave on loan or for good then we would be left with just three senior central defenders - Fabricio Coloccini, Mike Williamson and Steven Taylor.

Colo is decent but nearing the end of his career, Taylor is injury prone and not as good as he thinks he is and Williamson is a championship player at best.
