David Rozehnal's agent claims an agreement is in place to take him to Newcastle.David Rozehnal's agent has claimed that an agreement is in place to take the Paris Saint Germain defender to Newcastle.
The Magpies have been in negotiations with PSG in recent weeks, with manager Sam Allardyce keen to strengthen his defence before the start of the new season.
Reports suggested they were firm favourites to land the Czech Republic international, especially after Borussia Dortmund withdrew their interest.
Rozehnal's representative Pavel Zika announced earlier on Friday that Newcastle had a 50-50 chance of snapping up the player, with Sevilla the other club in the running.
But Zika has now told the Czech Republic media that Newcastle have won the race to sign Rozehnal.
"We have reached a final agreement. David moves to Newcastle," Zika told Idnes.
Although Alardyce has made it known he is keen on Rozehnal, there has been no announcement from Newcastle suggesting they are closer to bringing in the player.
