Newcastle will reportedly reignite their interest in Rangers striker Nikica Jelavic when the transfer window reopens in January.

According to The People, the Magpies made an enquiry during the summer regarding the availability of the Croatian forward, and will return to the Glasgow club again in the new year.

Rangers rejected a formal offer for Jelavic from Leicester City on deadline day, and are reluctant to let the 26-year-old leave Ibrox.

However, Newcastle are likely to test the resolve of the Scottish giants come the winter window, as Alan Pardew still seeks a long-term replacement for Andy Carroll.


Newcastle tried desperately to bring another goalscorer to St James' Park before the transfer deadline, and were credited with bids for Papiss Demba Cisse and Bryan Ruiz.

However, their attempts proved fruitless, and Pardew will have to make do with Demba Ba, Leon Best and Shola Ameobi until January.
