Newcastle United are favourites to land Sevilla defender Ivica Dragutinovic.

AS says Manchester City have failed with a £2 million offer and Newcastle will have representatives in Seville today for talks with Sevilla president Jose Maria del Nido in order to close a deal for the Serb.

De Nido is ready to sell should Newcastle, as expected, better City's offer. The Sevilla supremo knows that Dragutinovic is keen on a move to England this summer.
