Newcastle United’s Yoan Gouffran has revealed that he is not looking to play in any given position for the club, but he is more than willing to help manager Alan Pardew by playing in any position the manager wants. Gouffran was brought to the club as a striker after having impressed a lot during his time at Bordeaux. However, he has been used in a variety of roles by Pardew this season. He has been used out wide, as a midfielder, and as a false number nine. Gouffran, though, is not worried about the position he plays, but instead wants to help the team as much as possible.

Newcastle have been experiencing a remarkable turnaround in fortunes over the last few weeks. They managed a stunning 2-0 win over Chelsea, which was followed by an even more remarkable 1-0 win over Tottenham. They have helped them to rise close to the top half of the table. Newcastle have managed three wins in the last five matches. He has made 10 appearances for the club and has scored three goals, with one of them coming against Chelsea.

He has also created two assists as well. Newcastle have found a goal scoring striker in the form of Loic Remy, who is on loan from QPR.

“We have a lot of quality options here. We have Loic Remy as well as Shola Ameobi and Papiss Cisse in the squad. I don’t mind who I play with. We have a lot of competition for places and that is the most important thing. We must keep working hard. I am the type of player who wants to do a job for the team. That is the most important thing for me. I can play in different positions in attack or, if needed,” said the 27-year-old.
