Newcastle United failed with a bid for Benfica midfielder Filip Djuricic on deadline day.

Record says Newcastle offered €10 million for Djuricic, but it was thrown out by the Portuguese.

Newcastle saw Djuricic as an ideal replacement for PSG signing Yohan Cabaye, but refused to go higher after their opening bid was turned down.
