Newcastle United have failed with a bid for Stoke City striker Joselu.

The Sentinel says Stoke considered the bid derisory and will now wait to see if an improved offer lands on their table.

Joselu has courted headlines recently after stepping off the bench to net a brace at Bolton last weekend in his first game back at the club – and then added two more to his collection at St Pauli on Tuesday evening.

Newcastle boss Rafa Benitez knows all about his Spanish compatriot and sees him as a potential spearhead following promotion back to the Premier League.
