Ligue 1

Newcastle United & West Ham United braced for transfer defeat

gomis.jpgFans in the Football Transfer Tavern still have sore hands and arms from a huge round of applause during last night’s World Cup fixture.

This all because Jermaine Jones hit what could possibly be goal of the tournament for the United States against Portugal last night, although Robin van Persie would beg to differ.

But away from international football there is still a lot going on with the Daily Express reporting that Swansea City are set to sign Bafetembi Gomis.

The French striker, who is out of contract with Ligue 1 giants Lyon, has chosen the Welsh club over both Newcastle United and West Ham United.

The Geordies were rumoured to have offered £75,000-a-week to lure the 28-year- old-but instead he will join Garry Monk’s Jacks outfit.

Sunderland were also interested in signing him up on a free transfer but it now seems the Swans have got their man.

This swoop will also coast further doubt over Wilfried Bony’s Swans future after the Ivory Coast international enjoyed a dream debut season in the Premier League.

Newcastle fans. Should a club with a stature and history such as Newcastle’s be losing out on transfer targets to Swansea? Let us know your thoughts below.
