Massadio Haïdara (born 2 December 1992) is a French footballer who plays as a left-back for Premier League club Newcastle United.

Club career[edit]

Nancy[edit]

Haïdara made his professional debut on 11 December 2010 in a league match against Sochaux.[2] On 10 January 2011, he signed his first professional contract after agreeing to a three-year deal with Nancy.[3]

Newcastle United[edit]

On 25 January 2013, Haïdara signed for English Premier League club Newcastle United for an undisclosed fee (reportedly £2 million) to become Newcastle's ninth first team player with French nationality and fourth of five French players signed in the January 2013 transfer window.[4] He made his debut for Newcastle on 21 February 2013 in the Europa League against Metalist Kharkiv.[5]

During a match against Wigan Athletic on 17 March 2013, Haïdara came on as a substitute for injured Frenchman Mathieu Debuchy. A few minutes afterwards, he was stretchered off after a high tackle on him by Callum McManaman. The incident provoked a tunnel bust-up at half-time that saw Newcastle assistant manager John Carver and Wigan coach Graham Barrow both sent to the stands by referee Mark Halsey.[6]

International career[edit]

He currently represents France at U21 level.
