Newcastle demand top price for West Brom target Mitrovic

Newcastle United will not sell Aleksandar Mitrovic on the cheap in January.

The Evening Chronicle says the Serbian striker will be told to stay and fight for his place if the price isn't right for his services.

Both Partizan Belgrade and Anderlecht were told last month to forget any chance of signing the striker on loan and return with cash bids if they were keen to re-sign their former player.

West Bromwich Albion have been credited with an interest in Mitrovic after Alan Pardew tried to sign the World Cup-bound striker during his Crystal Palace days.

Rafa Benitez knows that his own chances of bringing in a striker could depend on Mitrovic being sold in January.

When asked about bringing in a striker, Benitez said: “I can't talk about positions because maybe some players here won't leave.

“I don't have any £15million offers for any of our players at the moment."
