Malmo insist no Newcastle contact over Ofere

Malmo insist no approach has been fielded from Newcastle United for their Nigerian striker Edward Ofere.

Reports in Sweden claim the Magpies are particularly showing a liking for 6ft 3in Ofere, who was capped by Nigeria earlier this year.

But Malmo insist they have not heard anything official from the St James' Park outfit.

"Newcastle will have to contact us so we can see what they have to offer," Malmo chairman Pelle Svensson told Fotbolldirekt.

"We haven't heard from Newcastle yet but it is easy to understand that the interest is big for him, even if it so far has been silent from interested clubs."

Svensson admits he can understand why a number of clubs are taking a keen interest in Ofere.

"It doesn't surprise me at all. He is hot at the moment," said Ofere.

"Look what he has done during the autumn. He has scored more goals than he has had opportunities."
