Newcastle United are making a fresh bid for Benfica midfielder Filip Djuricic this afternoon.

The Daily Mail says Newcastle are making another bid for Djuricic after their initial £10m offer was rejected.

Alan Pardew is undeterred in his attempts to sign the attacking midfielder and still hopes to bring him in before the close of play.

Toon's football staff rate Djuricic already a superior talent to Yohan Cabaye, who was sold to PSG this week for £23 million.
