Newcastle interim boss Joe Kinnear has confirmed that the club is interested in signing John Arne Riise from Roma on a loan deal.
Kinnear is keen to strengthen his team in the January transfer window and a new left-back is among the positions he is looking at.
“John’s name came up specifically because he’s not been in their team and he’s a good player,” Kinnear told The Journal.
“We made contact with their club and asked ‘Is there any chance of a loan?’ and that’s as far as it’s got at the moment.
“And what happened after I’d made the call? He’s back in the team and playing well, which changes things. When you make the call you’re always aware that things can change.”
