PSG defender Mario Yepes has been offered to Newcastle United.

The Sunday Sun says PSG have instructed a third party to find a buyer for £1.7 million-rated Colombian international Yepes, whose nickname in his homeland is "El Rey" - The King.

The 31-year-old has been in the French capital since 2004, having made his name at Nantes, but is unsettled after being told he will no longer be a first-team regular at PSG under coach Paul Le Guen.

Allardyce is likely to consult David Rozehnal before considering any move for 6' 3" Yepes, who has been linked with Lille and Werder Bremen but would prefer a move to the Premiership.
