Newcastle United legend Rob Lee can't see any top player wanting to sign for the club's director of football Joe Kinnear.

Kinnear was in charge of making the deals happen for the likes of top target Bafetimbi Gomis, but only Loic Remy, who turned the club down in January for QPR, arrived on loan.

Lee asked: "Kevin Keegan sold this club to me when I joined. If Joe Kinnear was speaking to you, are you going to join this football club. I'm not so sure..... They aren't coming. Players don't want to join Newcastle anymore."
