Magpies end striker interest

Post  1892NUFF on Sun Jul 10, 2011 4:31 am



Newcastle have drawn a line under their pursuit of Paris St. Germain striker Mevlut Erding after failing to agree personal terms.

The Magpies had earmarked the player to replace Andy Carroll and lodged a formal bid, thought to be in the region of £8.5m, for his services on Tuesday.

It was assumed earlier this week that a deal was virtually done for the Turkish international but he has now opted to stay in France instead.

Erding's agent, Pierre Frelot said: "He will not be going to Newcastle.

"The player decided not to move and he is staying in Paris next season."

It's rumoured the 24-year-old's wage demands were the real stumbling block behind his decision to snub a move to Tyneside.

Magpies boss Alan Pardew is now setting his sights on other targets but who ever they turn to, will have to fit into a strict new wage structure at St. James' Park.
