Martin confirms Mitrovic interest

The Serbia international has been used sparingly by the Magpies this season, making just six Premier League appearances of which none have been starts, and reports are claiming a January exit could be on the cards.

Manager Rafael Benitez appears to have a lack of trust in the 23-year-old forward, who has had his disciplinary problems since arriving at St James' Park from Anderlecht in 2015 for a rumoured £13million.

Newcastle look like they will have to sell in order to add new players in this transfer window and Bordeaux are hoping they can take Mitrovic off their hands for a suitable price.

However, the north-east outfit are refusing to budge on their £15m valuation and Martin admits the price of any potential deal could steer them to different targets.

"These tracks are very real, but we are working on other players," he told L'Equipe. "As for Mitrovic, the fact that he is playing in England doesn't make things easy for us from the financial point of view."
