Santiesteban rules out Newcastle transfer talk

Newcastle’s apparent interest in Matias Fernandez has been dismissed by the player’s agent as merely a ‘rumour.’

The Magpies have been linked with the Chilean international in the past few weeks and reports suggested that they were weighing up a January bid for the Sporting star.

Fernandez’s representative, Alejandro Santiesteban, has rejected any talk of a move to the North East and claims it is just simply media speculation:

“I’m not aware of the reported interest in Matias from Newcastle; nobody has got in touch with me so I think it must be a rumour.

“If a team is really interested in a player and has to pay a transfer fee then they have to get in touch with me and the club. That hasn’t happened.” SkySports
