Newcastle want Sibierski to sign new contract

Roeder told the Newcastle Evening Chronicle: “In my opinion Antoine has turned out to be one of the best free transfers of the season.

“I will be speaking to the chairman about giving him another season, and we know we also have to discuss the contracts of Titus Bramble, Nobby Solano and Craig Moore.

“But none of this will happen until after this month’s transfer deadline because we are putting so much of our efforts and energy in trying to bring some new players into the club.”
