Newcastle made attempt for Atletico Madrid defender Felipe

Newcastle United made an attempt for Atletico Madrid defender Felipe before last night's deadline fell.

According to COPE, Newcastle tried to bring in another high profile player from abroad.

The report states that an enquiry for Atletico's experienced centre-back Felipe was launched in the final hours of the window.

And Atletico planned for a potential exit, eyeing up out of favour Barcelona defender Clement Lenglet as his replacement.

Felipe had six months left on his contract in Madrid so a move to Newcastle wasn't unrealistic.

The 32-year-old was more than affordable for the Saudi owned club.
