French Connection Return To Toon Squad

20 July 2012 10:37
Hatem Ben Arfa and Yohan Cabaye will come back into the squad on Monday after the completion of their extended summer break.

The pair were granted extra leave after France’s Euro 2012 campaign and missed out on Newcastle United’s tour of Germany.

And French defender Mathieu Debuchy is expected to team up with them too.

United are currently working on deals involving Debuchy and FC Twente defender Douglas.

Alan Pardew: “I’m hoping to add more senior players.

“We’re working hard on those at the moment. We will see what happens.”
