Playmaker 'free to join' Newcastle following 'preliminary talks'

Published Add your comment

Newcastle United are on alert following the release of midfield target Karim Ziani, according to talkSPORT.

Following extensive talks with Wolfsburg in January, Alan Pardew looks set to get his man after being denied earlier in the year.

And following the sale of Kevin Nolan to West Ham United, Ziani would provide the perfect replacement for Newcastle.


The free transfer of Ziani would also represent excellent value to Newcastle, for a player who has made 61 international appearances for Algeria, including in last year's World Cup, the first in the countries history.

Ziani spent the last six months of the season on loan at Kayserispor, where he made two appearances for the Turkish club.

Newcastle have already brought in Demba Ba, Yohan Cabaye and Sylvain Marveaux this summer as they look to build upon their 12th place finish in the Barclays Premier League last season.
