    With OM leading the French Ligue 1 table currently with three wins outta three I dont see why Dede should leave them for New Castle United, besides OM will be playing in the UCL this season and that is another big platform for him to showcase his talent to the world. I'll advise him to stay with OM and help them win the French title and also do well in the UCL, with the WC coming on next year another impressive performance will increase his value on the transfer market and the big clubs will start chasing his signature.
