Newcastle star Seydou Doumbia is trying to get an art gallery to pay ALL of his parking fines

There’s something about footballers and cars.

If they’re not leaving them in Spanish car-parks.

They’re spending £250,000 on the status symbols.

But Seydou Doumbia has taken the game up a notch recently.

The Newcastle striker, who only arrived at St James’ Park on loan from Roma in January, has racked up a load of parking and speeding fines.

His way of getting around paying the fines?

Register you address as a local art gallery!

Needless to say the studio were far from impressed…

Surely the forward’s (reported) £60,000-a-week wages could cover some of those fines?
