Newcastle have made a £7 million bid for Mevlut Erdinc, despite the striker insisting he wants to stay at Paris St Germain.

The Daily Mirror claims that Newcastle have been tracking the star for the last three years, and Alan Pardew is desperate to sign Erdinc to beef up his forward line. Erdinc also reportedly has the qualities to be made the new no. 9 at the northern club.


Erdinc told French newspaper L’Equipe that he is planning to stay in France, saying: "I want to impose myself here and I do not fear competition. I'm ready. Anyway, there is always competition, at all clubs."

But Newcastle have not been perturbed by the Frenchman’s comments, and are hopeful that if they are willing to pay top dollar for Erdinc, Paris St Germain may be tempted to let the star go.

At 24-years-old, Erdinc fits into Pardew’s search for young fresh players, as the Newcastle manager builds on a long term goal to play European football once more.
