Newcastle bid for Clement Grenier turned down

Over the weekend, Newcastle made a €13m bid for Lyon attacking midfielder Clement Grenier which was rebuffed we understand.

We reported the aforementioned bid on Monday and Sky Sports’ reports of a ‘substantial bid’ for Grenier is likely to be Newcastle’s second concrete approach for the player although we are unable to confirm that a second bid has been made past the first €13m bid we already reported at the start of this week.

As far as we are concerned, Lyon remain in talks with Newcastle for the player and the Tyneside club has already had a proposition turned down.

We await further developments today.
