Magpies make £8 million bid for duo

Magpies make £8 million bid for duo

After their demoralising defeat at the hands of Hull City on Wednesday which prompted a swift and painful exit out of the FA Cup, Newcastle United have now realised that without reinforcements the club could realistically be looking at a relegation dogfight in the coming months.

Joe Kinnear has identified two players who he has expressed a desire to sign permanently, while two unknown Internationals are also on their way on loan. The boss has revealed the nationalities of the two loan signings: one Italian, and the other an Argentine.

Speaking in a post-match interview, Kinnear today explained that he has owner Mike Ashley's backing, and the £10 million transfers of two players, one being a 6'2 combative midfielder from Cameroon.

'We've made two serious £4million bids for two players and we'll probably end up spending £10million,' Kinnear told Sky Sports.

'We're waiting to hear on them.'

One of the players in question is thought to be Rennes battler Stephane M'Bia, who is 6'2 and hails from Cameroon. Kinnear's other target is however a mystery as of yet.

'He's from Cameroon, is a 6ft 2in midfielder and we're waiting to hear back from his club,' Kinnear remarked.

You won't get Mbia for £4 million, we couldn't get him in the summer as he was holding out for a 'big club'. Then again, he's all about the money so he might fit in at SJP!

It's going to be £6 million for M'Bia, and £4 million for the other target.

Perhaps, but I doubt very much you'll get him. I'm not even sure I want him anymore either, his attitude is wrong. Good luck with your bid but don't be too disheartened if it's rejected, because it probably will be.
