Newcastle still seeking new No9 despite Maiga arrival

Newcastle United remain in the hunt for Alan Pardew's new No9.

The Sunday Sun says Sochaux striker Modibo Maiga is NOT seen as the new number nine, though will arrive in January, with scouts continuing to search Europe to try and find a suitable candidate to take the revered shirt.

United are now looking into players with 18 months or under to run on their contracts.
