Midfielder Set For Exit

Midfielder Set For Exit

According to French media, one of our midfielders is headed for the exit door at St James' Park.

L`Équipe have said that hardly used midfielder, Henri Saivet, is headed to Montpellier on loan until the end of this season.

Saivet who wasn't a Rafa Benitez buy, joined us in the January window two seasons ago for £5m and was officially bought on Steve McClaren's watch.

The fact that he hardly played at all and only started a couple of games seemed to suggest that it wasn't a McClaren recommended signing before McClaren was sacked a few weeks later and him disappearing from trace under Rafa Benitez aside from a Summer loan to St Etienne for a season.

Appearing in the odd spell here this season, he has done ok but after every stint, he again has disappeared from the squad, only to now seemingly be off back to France.

It is alleged that an option to buy has been set at around €5m but surely if we're working in Sterling, id say it was £4.5m

Confirmation from Newcastle may be a while considering we're always left hanging with one thing or another.
