Marseille captain Beye set to join Newcastle

Marseille captain Habib Beye is set to join Newcastle United, the French club's president Pape Diouf said Wednesday.
"Habib made us aware that he wants to leave Marseille," Diouf said after the club's 2-0 home French league defeat to Nice on Wednesday. "An English club, Newcastle, has made contact with us and an accord for the departure of our captain is imminent."
The 29-year-old Beye, who plays at right back, joined Marseille from Strasbourg four years ago and has made 129 league appearances and scored twice for the south-coast club. Marseille also sold Franck Ribery to Bayern Munich this summer.
