St Etienne favourites for Newcastle defender Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa

Newcastle United defender Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa is in talks with Saint-Etienne.

Les Verts have moved ahead of RC Lens, Marseille and Bordeaux in the race for Yanga-Mbiwa, who is available from the Toon this summer.

The defender is viewed by St Etienne as a replacement for Kurt Zouma, who has completed his move to Chelsea.

The Ligue Une outfit are quietly confident of settling personal terms with Yanga-Mbiwa this week.
