The mirror has a report out this Sunday that Newcastle is interested in signing 30-year-old Serdar Tasci of Spartak Moscow who has 14 caps for Germany.
Two other Premier League clubs are reported interested in the no nonsense center-back and they are Watford and Stoke City.
Tasci joined Spartak Moscow from Stuttgart back in the 2013 and since then he has played 61 times with four goals; Tasci had joined Stuttgart way back in 2005.
In February of last year, Tasci returned to the Bundesliga, signing for Bayern Munich on loan for the rest of the season as they had an injury crisis burt he made only three appearances for the German powerhouse.

But we still have a number of players to sell this summer and some will depend on who we are able to sign this summer.
