Newcastle United manager Joe Kinnear has said that he has had an approach for Sami Hyypia rejected.

The veteran defender has been the subject of much transfer speculation after losing his place in Liverpool’s Champions League squad this season. But Rafael Benitez has dismissed Newcastle’s offer for the giant Finn.

Kinnear will have to look elsewhere for defensive reinforcements.

“I have spent most of the last two days trying to get finance and players,” said Kinnear today.

“I will start working on finances and players now right up until midnight and then tomorrow. Fingers crossed we can get all four deals done.”

“I tried for one centre-half, but got knocked back. Liverpool weren’t prepared to let Hyypia out.”

“I want to get somebody with experience because of the position we are in. We have a very young back four and I just want somebody who is a good organiser.”
