According to Lee Ryder, Feyenoord officials have told NUFC that they want to hear from them by 6pm today if they wish to sign Nicolai Jorgensen – however it looks like that ship may have already sailed, with breaking news this afternoon confirming that Daniel Sturridge could be set to arrive on loan instead.
Feyenoord are clearly keen to know if we are going to up our bid for their star striker, sending a ‘put up or shut up’ message to the club.
We’ve seen £13m and £15m bids rejected for Jorgensen, but, with the Dutch side said to have a £20m asking price, we have been well below their valuation thus far.
Feyenoord have told #nufc they want to hear by 6pm UK time on Jorgensen. Loan options also being looked at and NUFC still talking with view to sign a goalkeeper. Woodman will leave on loan if that comes off. #TransferWindow

So, it looks like Jorgensen may be a no-go if an improved and acceptable bid is not lodged by NUFC when the clock strikes 6 later today, although the latest development surrounding Daniel Sturridge suggests that we may have already moved on.
The Times, the Chronicle and BBC Radio Newcastle all claim that the club are now looking to get a loan deal secured for the England international striker.
If Sturridge is fit and stays fit, he’s a game-changer. Newcastle don’t have (m)any of those. https://t.co/TLvytiCS2c

Let us know your thoughts folks – would you prefer to see us up our bid for Jorgensen or sign Sturridge on loan?
