Newcastle closing in on deal for Sochaux striker Maiga

Newcastle United are closing in on a deal for Sochaux striker Modibo Maiga.

The Evening Chronicle says sources in France have indicated that Sochaux star Maiga is the hot favourite to be the first new face through the door in the New Year.

It is clear that the 24-year-old Mali international wants to be pulling on a black-and-white shirt in 2012.

The addition of Maiga would be a massive boost for Newcastle fans who have seen their side miss out in previous transfer windows.
