Newcastle have been quoted £10 million for the purchase of Charles N’Zogbia after a bid from Everton faltered, according to the Times.

N’Zogbia looked set for a move to Everton, and Wigan were reportedly pleased to be doing the deal with the side, as they see Newcastle as more of a threat to their standing on the Barclays Premier League table next season.


While Everton had been quoted £7 million for the winger, the deal has fallen through due to problems with the Toffees getting the cash together to cover the payment, which Wigan is reportedly demanding up front.

Newcastle, on the other hand, look to have a transfer kitty of £42 million after the sale of Andy Carroll in January, as well as Kevin Nolan and possibly Leon Best in the summer.

Newcastle would easily be able to cover the cost of bringing N’Zogbia into the club, despite the inflation that Wigan has added on to the sale. But Everton are reportedly not out of the mix just yet for N’Zogbia’s signature, with David Moyes hoping to sell some players soon to find the cash for the payment.
