Pavel Zika claims Newcastle have a 50-50 chance of landing David Rozehnal.David Rozehnal's agent Pavel Zika claims Newcastle have a 50-50 chance of landing the Paris Saint Germain defender.
The Magpies had looked clear favourites to sign Rozehnal when Borussia Dortmund pulled out of the race earlier this week.
However, Sevilla are now in the running for the 26-year-old and it is understood the stopper may prefer a switch to Spain.
Zika says negotiations are going well with both clubs and expects Rozehnal to join one of the two in the near future.
"With both clubs we are in the final stages of negotiations," Zika told Sport. "David will move to either Sevilla or Newcastle, it is 50-50.
"The negotiations are 90 per cent complete, 10 per cent are still to be discussed.
"As for the progress of the negotiations between the clubs, Newcastle are slightly ahead as they entered the chase earlier."
