IS BAFETIMBI Gomisa still on Newcastle United’s transfer radar

the agent of Lyon striker Bafetimbi Gomis says he is in talks with a number of Premier League clubs interested in signing the striker.

Gomis, a free agent this summer, has previously been the subject of interest from United.

However, the club is understood to have backed away from another move for the 28-year-old because of his wage demands.

Willie McKay, Gomis’s representative, told Sky Sports: “I am speaking to five Premier League clubs about Bafetimbi.

“It is no surprise there is a lot of interest in him, as he is one of the best free agents out there.

“I am speaking to one very ambitious chairman of an ambitious club, and they are very keen to sign him.

“Bafetimbi will go to a club who proves they really want him.

“The club who are really pushing for him have held a long-term interest in him, and made a big bid for him before when he was under contract at Lyon.”
