Newcastle United are unimpressed by agents fees demanded over the signing of Lyon striker Bafetimbi Gomis.

Gomis is off contract in June and has stated a move to Newcastle this month does interest him.

The Evening Chronicle says, however, Newcastle have been put off by the demands of the players' representatives with an agent fee of around £1m the demand for the deal from Lyon to Newcastle.

Gomis has Mondial Promotion listed as his representatives, the same group that represent Marseille's Andre Ayew and ex-Chelsea striker Didier Drogba.
