Sammy Ameobi admits Newcastle United are being overtaken by Frenchmen!

Following the addition of £5million France full-back Mathieu Debuchy, Newcastle have now agreed deals for Montpellier captain Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa, a central defender, Bordeaux striker Yoan Gouffran, who can play on the right and Nancy left-back Massadio Haidara for a combined £9million.

They are also close to announcing a pre-contract agreement for Toulouse midfielder Moussa Sissoko.

Ameobi tweeted: "need to brush up on my French because this is getting ridiculous lol."
