Three French clubs, Bordeaux, Marseille and RC Lens, remain interested in signing Newcastle’s Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa. All three clubs are thought to want to bring the centre back in on a one year loan deal, due to the fact that they are reluctant to pay a transfer fee along with the Frenchman’s considerable wages.
However, Mbiwa’s club Newcastle are not too interested in a loan deal, and if Yanga-Mbiwa is to leave the Magpies are thought to want a permanent transfer. Newcastle value Yanga-Mbiwa at around €6 million, and RC Lens especially, who were just hit earlier today by a punishment from the DNCG, are highly unlikely to be able to pay that kind of transfer fee.
