Luque left out

Albert Luque seems a step closer to Newcastle after being left out of Deportivo La Coruna's Intertoto Cup final against Marseille.


The Spanish striker is inching towards a switch to St James' Park, with Graeme Souness revealing that they had already agreed personal terms with the player.


However, an agreement between the two clubs over a fee was still proving hard to come by.


The Magpies are desperate for offensive reinforcements and it seems as though they are closer to landing Luque after he was left out of Deportivo's next game.


Manager Joaquin Caparros has left Luque out of the club's second leg of the Intertoto Cup final against Marseille.


"The situation today is that we will not count on Luque for this important match," said Caparros.


Luque's father Rafael says that the clubs are close to agreeing on a fee for Luque who will soon be on his way to Tyneside.


"The accord between the two clubs is imminent," said Rafael Luque.


"Luque and Newcastle have already closed on an accord."


Deportivo president Augusto Cesar Lendoiro says that the deal has still not been completed but negotiations are ongoing and it now seems merely just a matter of time.

Don't get my hopes up Brock! Did I read somewhere today that someone has put in a £6 million bid for Ashton?



Someone's getting ripped off.......


It was West Ham but it was only in the gossip column.



Well if it's true they're getting ripped off.
