Toon Upset At Given Bid

Last updated : 29 January 2009 By Sam
City have tabled a bid of £5million for the Republic of Ireland international keeper who has expressed a desire to leave St James Park.

"Irrespective of all the money I keep hearing, they've only offered £5m, not a penny more," Kinnear has said.

"We think it's personally insulting to probably the best goalkeeper in the Premier League.

"As far as I know, the chairman and the owner are very unhappy we've only been offered £5m.

"I don't want to lose him.

"I'm fighting a relegation battle, I want to keep every player and add to it, not lose it, but I really don't know."
