Having been linked with one Czech defender this morning Big Sam has made it a double, with defender David Rozehnal being added to the transfer tattle list. The Paris Saint Germain star is the subject of a bid from Borussia Dortmund, but now we have entered the battle for his signature. The 26-year-old has been a rock at the heart of the PSG defence for the last two years since joining from Club Brugge. Dortmund looked clear favourites to land Rozehnal, but now his representatives have confirmed Newcastle are now very much in the running as new boss Sam Allardyce targets some much needed defensive reinforcements. Pavel Zika admits that talks between PSG and Borussia are not going as smoothly as they could:
‘After a meeting between PSG and Borussia representatives it seemed the deal would be done easily, but now it looks that the negotiations will be very tough. Also, Newcastle are yet to have their strong say. It will depend which side hand PSG the most financially interesting offer. Both destinations [Borussia and Newcastle] have their magic, but PSG will have the final word. David is going to consider his future after Saturday’s match against Wales.’
BSA is a known fan of Rozehnal after trying to sign him for Bolton as recently as January and he has wasted little time in rekindling his interest now he`s boss of the Big Dogs.
