Newcastle face Chinese competition for Galatasaray attacker Garry Rodrigues

Newcastle United face competition for Galatasaray attacker Garry Rodrigues.

Fotomac says a number of Chinese clubs were interested in signing Galatasaray's Rodrigues but saw their efforts rebuffed.

The Cape Verde international was linked with a January move to Newcastle but nothing materialised.

The Chinese interest was said to be serious, but with Galatasaray in the midst of a four-team battle for the Turkish league title, they were keen to keep him in Istanbul until the end of the season.
