Just as Remi Garde and Christophe Galtier remain on the managerial radar – Garde’s face looks like it fits if Newcastle turn away from John Carver – so too Ligue 1 remains fertile ground for refreshing the squad on a budget.

Two potential Newcastle targets should start at the Velodrome on Sunday and both will be free agents in the summer. United have apparently made contact with Andre Ayew while Marseille’s top scorer Andre-Pierre Gignac netted in the last minute of last week’s 6-1 defeat of Toulouse.

Both want to move to the Premier League and even if their ages make them slightly older than Newcastle’s 21-27 blueprint, their free agent status would probably appeal. If they haven’t already, Graham Carr’s French contacts can expect a call sometime soon.
