Newcastle increase Rozehnal offer
David Rozehnal
Rozehnal's representatives say he wants a move to Newcastle
Newcastle have upped their offer for Paris St Germain's David Rozehnal as they compete with Borussia Dortmund for the 26-year-old defender's signature.

The Magpies initially had a 2m bid rejected for the Czech international, while the German club are believed to have tabled 2.7m.

PSG chairman Alain Cayzac has hinted that Dortmund had edged ahead of the English club in the race of Rozehnal.

Newcastle are now waiting for PSG's response to their latest offer.

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.

He tried to sign ex-Bolton centre-back Tal Ben Haim but missed out as the Israel international opted to join Chelsea.

Allardyce has also been linked with a move for 33-year-old Liverpool stalwart Sami Hyypia and Marseille skipper Habib Beye.

Hyypia made 29 appearances for the Reds last season but has seen Jamie Carragher and Daniel Agger establish themselves as Liverpool's first-choice centre-back partnership.
