Newcastle complete Rozehnal deal
David Rozehnal
Rozehnal was also wanted by Borussia Dortmund and Sevilla
Newcastle United have completed the signing of Czech Republic international defender David Rozehnal from Paris St Germain for a fee of 2.9m.

The 26-year-old has signed a four-year contract at St James' Park after agreeing terms with boss Sam Allardyce.

Rozehnal becomes Newcastle's third signing of the summer, after midfielder Joey Barton and striker Mark Viduka.

Rozehnal, who has won 34 caps for the Czechs, could cost another 200,000 depending on appearances.

Rozehnal began his career in his home country with Sigma Olomouc and twice won the Belgian title with Bruges before his move to PSG in 2005.

Newcastle boss Sam Allardyce is keen to bring in central defenders after releasing Titus Bramble, Craig Moore, Oguchi Onyewu as well as left-back Olivier Bernard.

The Magpies boss also revealed on Thursday he was hopeful of signing Cameroon midfielder Geremi from Chelsea.
