29-year-old Yoan Gouffran joined Newcastle United back in January 2013 for a cut price fee of £500,000 from Bordeaux. Gouffran has been out of favour since Steve McClaren took over as manger at St James Park, despite making 66 appearances for Newcastle in two seasons prior to McClaren’s arrival.
The midfielder has made just one solitary appearance for the club this season and knows at his age he needs to be playing first team football.
During his time so far at Newcastle he entered the club’s record books of scoring in five consecutive games, becoming the first player to do so since Alan Shearer back in 1997.
