N’Doye set to return to his former club


After a year at St Andrew’s, Blues midfielder Chiekh N’Doye is to return to his former club Angers as the Blues hierarchy looks to slash the wage bill.

According to reports in France, the Senegal international will complete the move on Thursday after a countdown video for the announcement emerged on the club Twitter.

N’Doye has made 39 appearances in a Blues shirt and is one of the club’s top earners after signing under Harry Redknapp.

The St Andrew’s faithful will no doubt miss his passion for the club and were hoping he could come good after his appearance at the World Cup. His departure will leave only defensive midfielders – the Gardner brothers, David Davis who’s still recovering from injury and Maikel Kieftenbeld.

What are your thoughts on this news, sad to see him go or is this a no brainer?


  1. So we let another one go from an already depleted squad and we can only bring in one more head on a free or loan. Why not keep him till the end of the season at least. TTA have well and truly messed our great club up. EFL are not helping either. I don’t understand this FFP, but something isn’t right if Villa can suddenly be allowed to buy new players when they were massively in debt. So what if their new owners have money, so does ours. So why are they allowed to spend and we’re not when they owed far more than we did. Either the EFL are picking on us (which I doubt) or our owners are hiding something drastically bad (which I believe). After all this company are venture capitalists and those types of companies invest quickly to make the money but sell on quickly when they can. I sense there is a period of recoup what they can then sell on, but us long suffering fans will never know till it is too late. The best we can hope for now is that Monk stays and we can nurture some great kids through who will set the world alight and keep us comfortable in the league. We’ll see.

    • We can’t really bemoan the Efl. they’re just doing there job. It’s essentially ren’s job to organise the club’s finances or at the very least oversee the strategy. the difference between ourselves and villa is that they have assests in terms of players with value they can sell and larger incomes and have massively she’d their wage bill which shows that they are on the right track to getting back in line with ffp whereas we clearly haven’t. But is it necessary to claim your a long “suffering” fan? I’m personally quite happy being a blues fan no matter what goes on at the club.

  2. Maybe the villa get away with it maybe due to the fact that a certain prince is a villa fan and holds a certain position with the FA.!!!

  3. Wages again seem to be the problem !! The club are being forced into good housekeeping by the FFP. Maybe this will be a good thing in the long term ,but in the short term is hard to digest for the loyal and dedicated fans.
    The only real positive at the moment is Gary Monk and his team, the fact they haven’t jumped ship could mean they have some confidence in there ability to nurture the younger player in and around the first team squad. I do hope so, I have said for sometime that I believe this is the way forward.
    A season of struggle ? maybe, but whilst we can retain Monk we have every chance of surviving as at present he is our greatest asset. KRO
