Rafael Benitez: 'Nicolai Jorgensen deal out of my hands'

Rafael Benitez: 'Nicolai Jorgensen deal out of my hands'”

Rafael Benitez has admitted that Newcastle United's hopes of landing Nicolai Jorgensen from Feyenoord rests exclusively with Mike Ashley and Lee Charnley.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst confirmed in his press conference that Feyenoord are searching for a new striker should Nicolai Jorgensen depart for Newcastle United.

The Denmark global was signed by Feyenoord in July 2016 from Copenhagen for a fee of 3.5 million euros.

Jorgensen have been in splendid form for Feyenoord since arriving from Copenhagen in 2016, bagging 26 goals in 43 games - 5 of which have come in his last 6 games.

The Denmark worldwide has been in impressive form for Feyenoord this season.

The Sun understands the Toon have agreed a £50,000-a-week deal with the 27-year-old, who could sign with the Premier League club before they face Chelsea in the FA Cup fourth round on Sunday (28 January). Ashley has relented and the Magpies are now negotiating with Feyenoord over a £16million deal for striker Nicolai Jorgensen.

The Newcastle United manager has been impressed by his performances this season and could make a move in the coming days.

'I think we have to reduce the transfer window because it makes no sense.

Sources at the De Kuip Stadium have indicated that Newcastle have upped their initial offer of around 15.75 million euros but the bid has again fallen short of the valuation for the Danish global striker.

Feyenoord insiders are happy to hold out for Jorgensen's true valuation - which they believe to be around £20m - as they know the opportunity for him to perform on the global stage at this summer's World Cup could see his price multiply. Only time will tell.

"There may be something in play, but I have not heard anything yet".
