Newcastle have one week to sign Mevlut Erding.
Decision time
Newcastle United have been given one week to sign Mevlüt Erdinç before PSG listen to bids from other suitors. Oh, and Joey Barton runs rampant on Twitter.

According to yesterday’s French press Newcastle have one week to tie up a deal to bring Mevlüt Erdinç to Newcastle.

Newcastle’s €7.5m (£6.57m) for the player has been accepted by Paris Saint-Germain and it’s now up to Newcastle to reach agreeable personal terms with Erdinç to complete the transfer. If they cannot manage to do this, Erdinç will be made available to the other clubs interested in him, such as Lille and Rennes.

Erdinç has previously said that he would prefer to stay at Paris Saint-Germain, but it seems that Kevin Gameiro and Guillaume Hoarau are already ahead of him in the pecking order of PSG’s strikers and it is thought that PSG – now backed by Arab money – may yet recruit another striker too.

Erdinç in fact began his last game on the right wing for PSG. It’s not the first time he has played there and he can be a versatile player, although it is thought that he much prefers playing up front. If that’s his priority then it will surely be more likely at Newcastle than PSG. (more…)
