Yoan Gouffran

Position:
Winger
Date signed:
23rd January 2013

Former France under-21 forward Yoan Gouffran has developed into a fine left winger on Tyneside after resurrecting his career under the leadership of Rafa Benítez.

Born in Villeneuve-Saint-Georges - a suburb of Paris - Yoan started out at Red Star Paris before developing his game with SM Caen.

After five years in the professional ranks in Normandy, he moved to Bordeaux in 2008 and scored the winning goal as Les Girondins pipped Marseille to the Ligue 1 title in May 2009 - securing Champions League football.

After 179 appearances and 40 goals for the club, Yoan moved to Newcastle United in January 2013 and he made a bright start - scoring in five successive matches at St. James’ Park in the first half of the 2013/14 season.

Despite falling out of favour over the following seasons, he was a surprise inclusion in a 4-1 win over Reading at the start of the 2016/17 season and he justified his manager’s faith by scoring vital goals against Derby, Wolves and Norwich.
