Kinnear: Veloso is a realistic target

Kinnear: Veloso is a realistic target

Newcastle United are racing against time to sign Miguel Veloso from Sporting Lisbon for a fee close to £11 million, according to The Sun.

Joe Kinnear has already stated that the club hopes to bring in at least two new faces to St. James' Park, and he was quick to state that Veloso was in fact a target.

Speaking to reporters after the game against Sunderland, Kinnear said: 'He is [definitely] a realistic target.'

The Magpies will hope to tie-up the deal as early as possible, and if both clubs agree a fee, Sporting's midfield ace could be headed for the Toon in the next few hours.

The Sun also estimates that a central defender is on the way for the Magpies, although, no names were mentioned.

The news comes after Kinnear publicly conceded defeat at the hands of Liverpool in his attempts to capture highly-rated veteran centre-back Sami Hyypia.
