Jimenez driving Newcastle's Barnes bid

Newcastle United refuse to give up on landing Derby County winger Giles Barnes.

The Independent says the Toon's new vice-chairman Tony Jimenez was driving the deal yesterday.

Jimenez offered £1.5m to Derby; they said no and want close to double that sum.

The transfer may yet happen as it is believed Barnes is keen on moving to Newcastle, and it would not be unfeasible for personal terms to have been discussed already.
