Newcastle United are preparing a move for Tottenham playmaker Niko Kranjcar as the Magpies appear to be struggling to secure a deal for Birmingham City midfielder Sebastien Larsson. Alan Pardew is looking to bring in a creative midfielder as he looks to strengthen his St James’ Park side ahead of the second half of the season that could see the club move upwards towards a top six finish or down into a relegation zone.
The Croatian international is very much surplus to requirements at White Hart Lane and has only started one Premier League match this season and whilst the 26 year old has been linked with moves to the continent he may prefer to continue to ply his trade in the Premier League.
Harry Redknapp is looking to trim his unwieldy squad and to that end has already loaned out David Bentley and will more than likely offload Robbie Keane as well and will reportedly be looking for a fee in the region of £6m for Kranjcar which would be a very fair price for a player with undoubted ability and a desire to prove any doubters that he has a lot to offer.
