Newcastle attempt to talk down St Etienne Matuidi price

Newcastle United are in talks with St Etienne over a fee for midfielder Blaise Matuidi.

The Daily Mail says Newcastle manager Alan Pardew hopes to offset the departure of captain Kevin Nolan by bringing in Matuidi.

Matuidi has been watched by Arsenal for three years and is rated at £13million by the French side.

Newcastle hope to do a deal for around £8.5m.
