Newcastle eye Zigic deal

Valencia striker attracting attention

 

Skysports.com understands Valencia striker Nikola Zigic would be interested in a move to Newcastle.

 

Reports have linked Zigic with a possible summer switch to Tyneside in a swap deal, with Magpies full-back Jose Enrique going to Valencia. Newcastle boss Kevin Keegan is believed to be in the market for striking reinforcements, with doubts continuing to surround the future of Michael Owen and the news that both Obafemi Martins and Mark Viduka are set to miss the start of next season through injury. Zigic's future at Valencia looks uncertain with the giant striker failing to make an impact at La Mestalla last season. The Serbian international has been continually linked with a move to England and the player's agent, Milan Calasan, says the big target-man would welcome a move to St James' Park. "Yes Nikola would be interested in a move to Newcastle as he has always wanted to play in England," Calasan told skysports.com. "There are many clubs interested in Nikola including some from Italy, but we are waiting to see what Valencia want to do. "We do not know if Valencia want to keep him or sell him."
