After missing out on Loic Remy, Sky Sports News and various other media outlets were reporting that NUFC had agreed a fee with Montpellier for defender Yanga-Mbiwa. The fee is believed to be around £7 million.
Mbiwa has also been on the radar of AC Milan, but it appears that Newcastle cemented their interest with a firm bid, and the player is supposedly flying to Newcastle tonight after his game with Marseille.
After losing to Reading at home today, Alan Pardew will be absolutely desperate to add some new faces, especially in the centre of defence where Mike Williamson has been struggling all season. With fan favourite Fabricio Coloccini ready to leave the club due to personal reasons, Mbiwa’s signing becomes even more important.
What do you think? Are you in favor of the signing?
