Newcastle bid imminent while Gomis plays 4th division football

Bafetimbi Gomis last weekend played Lyon-Ducheres in a CFA (4th Division) match as Newcastle United’s impending bid is imminent. 

The Magpies are expected to make an offer by the end of the day after their €7m suggestion (which was not a formal bid) was rejected by Lyon last week.

The player is widely understood to prefer a move to Marseille. 

Bafetimbi Gomis has since requested to train with Lyon B side who play 4th division football in an attempt to stay fit after he was left off Lyon’s pre-season tour of the USA.
