Wise driving Newcastle's Modric deal
Indeed Wise and Tony Jimenez, Newcastle's recruitment supremo, were heavily involved in arranging not only Modric's visit to Newcastle but a meeting that Zdravko Mamic, Dinamo's vice-president, held with club representatives in the city's Malmaison hotel this week. The agent Peter Harrison was also present.
Dinamo are seeking £20 million for the Croatia star, though it's understood Toon are confident of paying significantly less. Personal terms are set to range between £60-80,000-a-week.
