Newcastle United are reportedly planning a bid for Tottenham playmaker Niko Kranjcar who has been told he can leave White Hart Lane this month if an offer for his services is received. Harry Redknapp has made it clear that the Croatian international is very much surplus to requirements and rather than have the former Portsmouth man wasting away on the subs bench the North London club will be looking to offload the talented midfielder this month.

Alan Pardew is looking to add more creativity to his midfield and will hope that St James’ Park owner Mike Ashley will release the requisite finances needed to nab the 26 year old. Kranjcar is believed to be valued at around £6m and Spurs are said to not be interested in loaning out the player as they look to generate funds for any moves that Redknapp is planning this month.

Niko Kranjcar has started just one Premier League match as he has seen the excellent form shown by Gareth Bale severely restrict his first team chances. The adaptable Zagreb born midfielder may well be keen to stay in the Premier League but has also generated interest from the continent where the likes of Monaco and Valencia are said to be interested.
