Newcastle look set to switch their attention to Wolfsburg attacker Das Bost after reportedly missing out on their No.1 target Charlie Austin.
Bookmakers suspended betting on Austin moving to London rivals West Ham yesterday forcing Newcastle to switch their attention to an alternative target - the Magpies are said to be unwilling to match Rangers’ valuation for their top scorer effectively ending negotiations. Bost enjoyed a fruitful season in the Bundesliga last term netting 16-times from only 17 starts – including 4 assists – and for a fee believed to be around $15 million the powerful forward is within the clubs self-imposed budget restraints. Steve McClaren knows Das Bost well from his time in Eredivisie with FC Twente – he was prolific at Heerenveen 45 goals in 56 league starts – and despite his success during the last campaign the Dutchman remains unsettled at Wolfsburg opening up the possibility of a potential move away.
