Newcastle united tell Amalfitano, Abeid they're free to leave

Valerio Pennicino

As we get close to the summer transfer window, we'll get a clearer picture of the plans Joe Kinnear and Mike Ashley for Newcastle United going forward. Those plans right now appear to not include back ups Romain Amalfitano and Mehdi Abeid, as according to The Journal, both have been told they're free to leave the club.

Mehdi, 20, signed a five-year deal with the Magpies in 2011 and made just three appearances before being loaned to St. Johnstone this past season.

Amalfitano, 23, signed with the Toon in the 2012 summer transfer window after making 58 appearances with Reims in France's Ligue 2. The attacking midfield appeared in just a handful of games for the Magpies since he signed.

Both players don't seem to be in the future for the Toon, so Kinnear and company will seem to give them the ability to venture somewhere else for football during the summer window.
