Boumsong to Marseille?

Jean-Alain Boumsong is being linked with a move to Marseille as reports in the North East claim Graeme Souness would like to re-sign Jonathan Woodgate.

 

Newcastle United will no doubt be involved in the January sales and Real Madrid stopper Woodgate, who has been severely hampered by injuries in the Spanish capital, is reportedly an ambitious target for the Tyneside outfit.

 

It has been suggested that Woodgate and Albert Luque could swap clubs in a loan arrangement between the two clubs, who enjoy a very good working relationship.

 

Woodgate has always maintained his determination to prove himself at El Santiago Bernabeu, while Souness and chairman Freddy Shepherd have insisted Luque is staying put.

 

Boumsong, meanwhile, is rumoured to be unsettled in the North East and his mother, who also manages his interests, has been spotted at Marseille recently, sparking talk in the French media that a move could be on the cards.

 

L'OM would surely not be able to afford the former Rangers defender's wages and Liverpool have already complained about the Stade Velodrome side's apparent attempts to line up a move for Djibril Cisse.

 

Marseille are always busy in the transfer market and have taken Benoit Angbwa, Jerome Bonnissel and Hamdi Harbaoui on trial.

 

Coach Jean Fernandez will wait to see who he will be working with once the January transfer window slams shut but any switch for Boumsong would appear to represent a difficult avenue to go down.

We want to recoup most of the fee we paid for him. How could they afford him?

French sides have got a lot more money than they used to thanks to a new TV deal, but I'd be amazed if they could find £8m.

I'd accept £6m for him tbh.

What are the chances of Woody playing a game with our medical staff and training regime/facilities?

Slim and none :blush:

 

I don't think at this point getting rid of Boumsong is the right idea, considering the fact Taylor is injured and that would leave us with a back four of Babayaro, Bramble, Ramage and Carr. And since Carr seems not to play all that often who can step in at RB?

Wait until we find a replacement before selling, then 6 or so million would do nicely. :D

He's being one of out worst players this season but i dont think it would be the right time to get rid, especially without a replacement lined up.

 

Would love to see Woodgate back but his injury troubles are always going to be the main downside of a re-sign.

 

We would never recoup the £8mill we paid for him. Panic buy last season when defenders on the market were scarce. We'd be lucky to get £5mil.
