£10m Toon striker bid rejected - reports

Published Add your comment

Newcastle United have been rebuffed in their efforts to sign striker Papiss Demba Cisse, according to reports.

The Daily Mirror claims the Magpies had an offer of £10 million rejected by Freiburg last night (Tuesday), as Alan Pardew continues his striker pursuit at St. James' Park.

Pardew has been linked with a handful of forwards throughout the transfer window as the Toon look to replace Andy Carroll, who left the club in January, but have so far been unsuccessful in adding to their ranks.

With the deadline set to pass at 11pm tonight, Sochaux striker Modibo Maiga seems the most likely addition at Newcastle United today, although reports in the same paper claim negotiations over this deal have also reached deadlock.

It's widely reported that the club will have to increase their offer to £13 million if they wish to bring Demba Cisse to Newcastle.


There is more positive news for the Tyneside outfit in defence though, with Newcastle United completing a deal for highly-rated full back Davide Santon on Tuesday.

The Italian international admitted the lure of the Barclays Premier League was key, and is the perfect replacement for Jose Enrique at Newcastle United.
