Hertha Berlin have issued a 'hands off' warning to any potential suitors for defender Roman Hubnik.

The 26-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to Newcastle United this summer after staring for the Berlin side that have topped Bundesliga 2 this season.

Hubnik's contract with Berlin runs until 2014, and the club have no plans to sell the rising star.

Hertha general manager Michael Preetz told Berliner Zeitung newspaper: "Roman Hubnik is a player of Hertha Berlin.


"He is a regular in our first team and he is contracted to the club.

"We have the ambition not to sell any first-team regular at the end of the season."

As well as scouts from St James' Park, staff from Blackpool were also rumoured to have watched the Czech Republic international this season.

Toon fans will be expecting plenty of business from manager Alan Pardew this summer, with the manager promising to invest all of the money received from the sale of Andy Carroll.
