Newcastle United have ruled out a late move for Pierre-Michel Lasogga ahead of the transfer deadline.

Reports in Germany linked the club with a £7million bid for the Hamburg striker.

But Lasogga, previously a target for United during his time at Hertha Berlin, is not understood to be a target.

And United head coach Steve McClaren is not expecting any more players to arrive at St James’s Park before the transfer window closes tomorrow.
