Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew is reportedly considering offloading Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa in the summer.

Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew is reportedly open to selling Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa this summer.

The 24-year-old, who moved to St James' Park from Montpellier in January last year, was replaced at half-time in last Saturday's 4-0 defeat to Southampton.

According to The Journal, Pardew has reservations about the defender's aerial presence and suitability for the Premier League, which could spell the end for Yanga-Mbiwa.

Reports have claimed that a return to France could be an option after the player was linked with a move to Lille.
