Newcastle must up bid for Turan

Newcastle United must up their bid if they're to clinch the signing of Galatasaray attacking midfielder Arda Turan.

The Daily Star says reports in Turkey suggest Newcastle have already lodged a £9m bid for the 21-year-old left-sided midfielder.

Galatasaray are holding out for £11m, but talks remain ongoing between the two sides and a deal could happen.

Turan's agent Ahmet Bulut said: "I cannot talk with any club unless Galatasaray say that I can."
