Benalouane could leave Seahorses

Sky Sports understands that Cesena are ready to let Yohan Benalouane leave in January. The 24-year-old is not in coach Daniele Arrigoni's plans for the first team and has been limited to just a handful of appearances. The highly-rated former St Etienne defender joined Cesena in 2010 despite interest from the likes of Juventus. But he has never emerged a first-team regular and is looking to move on - with Newcastle understood to be monitoring his situation after watching him in Coppa Italia action last week. We understand that Benalouane's agent is looking for a new team for him, and there is interest from England but no offer at this stage for Cesena to consider.
