Outgoing transfers in doubt as Kinnear targets buys

Newcastle boss Joe Kinnear has revealed that the club are still waiting on official offers for Shay Given and Charles N'Zogbia. Given has been undergoing a medical at Manchester City while N'Zogbia has been linked with a deadline day move to Wigan. However, Kinnear has admitted that he is not totally confident of deals being struck because neither club has put money on the table so far. "There's haggling going on at the moment. We're still waiting to hear the fee," the Magpies manager told Sky Sports. "We haven't received an official offer for Shay (Given) and we're still waiting for Charles (N'Zogbia). "The chairman is speaking to their representatives, so hopefully something can be done so that we can move on and get two more decent players into the club. "I'm confident that we'll get those. But I'm not sure about the outgoing deals at the moment." Ryan Taylor is due to join Newcastle, but his transfer from Wigan will not be finalised until N'Zogbia seals his switch to the JJB Stadium.
