Pardew Quiet Over Failed Medical

18 December 2011 05:03
Alan Pardew declined to comment on reports that Sochaux striker Modibo Maiga's proposed move to Newcastle has been scuppered by a failed medical.

The news filtered out on Saturday, but no-one at St James' Park would confirm it.

Maiga was top of Pardew's wanted list and has been tracked all season.

If true . this would be a massive blow to the Newcastle manager.
