Newcastle United accept £2 million Best bid from Blackburn Rovers

According to reports Blackburn Rovers have had a £2 million offer accepted by Newcastle United for Leon Best.

The Newcastle United Blog claims there are reports suggesting that the Magpies have agreed the fee with Rovers and Scottish champions Celtic.

However, it is understood that Best is not keen on moving north of the border and it is unclear whether he will accept a drop into the Championship to join Rovers.

Rovers are on the look-out for a new striker given the expected departure of Yakubu to China.
