No Jimmy Floyd

No Jimmy Floyd

Glenn Roeder has denied the rumours in the Journal that Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink is set to move to St James' Park.

The Magpies are in desperate need of a striker following the retirement of Alan Shearer, sale of Michael Chopra and injury to Michael Owen. But it seems as though the newpaper was pushing for the deal on behalf of the player rather than reporting on Newcastle's actions. And the 'scoop' has backfired with Glenn Roeder far from impressed by the rumours.

Hasselbaink is out of contract at Middlesbrough and the Journal reported he was set to sign a short-term contract at Newcastle.

Roeder: 'Contrary to the newspaper report about Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink signing for Newcastle United as a done deal, there is no truth in it whatsoever.

'It disappoints me when stories like this come out with not even one per cent of truth and the people who write them don't take the trouble to ask the people at the club first.

'It is the time of year for speculation and Newcastle United being the club it is, it will often be used as a vehicle.

'But we have our own targets and a list of players that hopefully we will be able to move for shortly.'
