Marseille set to lose out to Newcastle for Seydou Doumbia

Marseille are set to miss out on yet another attacking target during this January transfer window in the form of Seydou Doumbia.

According to our colleagues at Le 10 Sport, AS Roma have agreed to allow the player to join Premier League side Newcastle United on loan with an option to buy in principle.

There are still some details to work out, but it appears that Doumbia is all set to join Newcastle, barring an extraordinary turnaround in events.

NUFC’s ability to pay the entirety of the player’s wages during this loan spell unlike the likes of Marseille is believed to have been a big factor.
