Reports confirm that Newcastle has rejected a bid from fellow relegation candidates Brighton for Aleksandar Mitrovic.
The Serbian forward has been adamant about leaving the club with a lack of playing time hindering his chance at playing in the World Cup this summer. "My patience is almost to the end," Mitrovic said at the end of last year. "I want to play. I want to be on the pitch. If you want to do something there (at the World Cup), you have to be ready. If I want to be ready, I have to play games and to be on the pitch scoring goals." But Brighton's bid failed to hit Newcastle's £15 million asking price as the Magpies look to fund a move for another striker. The club saw its £12 million bid for Feyenoord forward Nicolai Jorgensen rejected while also showing interest in Leicester City's Islam Slimani. Jan 25 - 2:11 PM
