NEWCASTLE United have made a late bid to sign Liam Ridgewell from Birmingham City as the transfer window draws to a close.

Ridgewell, who can play at left-back or in the centre of defence, handed in a transfer request at St Andrews yesterday but it is unclear whether the Midlands club are willing to sell.

The 27-year-old started his career at Aston Villa before joining the Blues in 2007, but now wants a move away from St Andrews following their relegation last season.

Newcastle striker Nile Ranger has been strongly linked with a move in the opposite direction but it is unclear whether he will be part of any deal.
