Newcastle have failed in a late bid to lure Charles N'Zogbia back to St James' Park.

The Magpies made a last-gasp offer for the 24-year-old Frenchman, who left the club in a £6million move to Wigan two years ago after waging a concerted campaign, but saw it swiftly rebuffed by the Latics.



Sunderland boss Steve Bruce, who signed N'Zogbia during his time at the DW Stadium, has been monitoring the winger's situation for some time, but has been unwilling to match Wigan's valuation.



But it appears that the Magpies simply left it too late as they launched a desperate search for new recruits in anticipation of striker Andy Carroll's move to Liverpool.
