With the recent "French Revolution" on Tyneside, many pundits are rating Yohan Cabaye as one of the best signings of the summer. With that in mind I have drawn up a list of the 10 best foreign imports at Newcastle United.
There are a couple of caveats to this list. Firstly, I am not counting the Republic of Ireland as "foreign". If I did, the list would look very different!
Secondly, I am only including players from the last 30 years—it's hard to judge players I haven't seen play! I don't think this excludes many great foreign players. George Robledo is probably the only notable exception; based on his goal tally alone, he would surely top the list.
