Liverpool Flop Linked With 4m Newcastle United Move

Newcastle United wanted Milan Jovanovic included in Liverpool’s deal for Andy Carroll, it has been revealed.

The Daily Express says it emerged last night that Newcastle tried to sign Liverpool forward Jovanovic as a makeweight in the Carroll deal.

But Jovanovic, 29, remained out of reach after the Magpies played hard-ball over Carroll’s fee.

The decision has left Toon well short of striker options for the remainder of the season.
