Club reject £30 million offer from Magpies

Newcastle are in the running to sign Tino Livramento from Southampton following their relegation to the Championship last season, but they are driving a hard bargain. The Saints do not want to part with the right-back and have rejected an offer from their former Premier League rivals to snag his signature.

According to talkSPORT, the Magpies have bid £30 million for Livramento but Southampton have knocked it back, valuing him closer to the £50 million mark. However, they really don’t want to let go of the “impressive” defender, whose current contract runs until 2026.

‘New favourites’ emerge to sign Newcastle man

Outcast goalkeeper Karl Darlow is set to move on from Newcastle this summer before his current contract runs out next year. He has received interest from Bournemouth but Leeds United have emerged as the ‘new favourites’ to strike a deal for the 32-year-old.

That’s according to NUFC Blog, who report that the recently relegated Whites are offering a lower salary for Darlow but can give him regular game time with Illan Meslier expected to depart. Of course, the temptation of Premier League football with the Cherries is high but he risks being low in the pecking order.

Newcastle have valued Darlow at £5 million but are willing to accept less in order to complete a sale and remove him from their current wage bill.
