Newcastle stunned by Geremi news

Published Add your comment

Cameroon midfielder Geremi remains a Newcastle player despite Turkish club Ankaragucu claiming to have signed him.

The 31-year-old did travel to Turkey to speak to the club and was photographed there.

However, despite Ankaragucu's official website claiming he had agreed an 18-month deal, Press Association Sport understands Geremi is still on the books at St James' Park, where officials were mystified by the announcement.

The former Real Madrid, Chelsea and Middlesbrough player is due to meet up with his international team-mates next week ahead of the African Nations Cup in Angola.

But sources close to him insist he is still looking for a new club after finding himself surplus to requirements on Tyneside in recent months.

Geremi is one of the club's remaining high earners and as boss Chris Hughton attempts to close in on his January targets - the names of Leeds' FA Cup hero Jermaine Beckford and Sheffield United defender Matt Kilgallon appear high on his list - his removal from the wage bill would free up extra funds.
