Newcastle Bid £7m for PSG Striker

Newcastle United have offered around £7 million for Paris St-Germain’s Turkish international striker Mevlut Erdinc.Newcastle first expressed their interest in the forward 12 months ago when Chris Hughton was their manager and failed with a bid last month.
Erdinc is a favourite of chief scout Graham Carr, and has been regularly watched by manager Alan Pardew and his assistant John Carver.
The offer for the former Sochaux striker has not been accepted yet, although the arrival of Kevin Gameiro from Lorient means the 24 year-old is not first choice at PSG and is willing to move.
Newcastle expect to be told whether their bid has been successful when the former Brazil international and Inter Milan manager Leonardo takes up his position as PSG’s sporting director tomorrow.
