Galatasaray centre back Aurelien Chedjou is a candidate for Alan Pardew mainly because he has already announced his intentions to sign the player in the previous season. With an unsuccessful attempt the previous time, the Magpies boss could go for a second try in order to lure the Cameroonian to his side.
The 28-year-old has played 29 games scoring four and has been known to be able to bring the ball out of defence before making a pass. The defender has great concentration and has been known to read the game really well with his ability to intercept the opponent’s attack. Chedjou will surely be worth more than the signing’s Newcastle United are currently used to purchasing with his £8.3 million price tag.
