DORTMUND WANT ROZEHNAL
According to Germany’s DPA news agency, Borussia Dortmund want to buy Czech international David Rozehnal from Paris Saint-Germain.

The Bundesliga side, where Jan Koller and Tomas Rosicky enjoyed several seasons, are reportedly offering PSG 4 million euros for the 26-year-old defender. The French side, however, want at least 5 million.

Nearing the end of a difficult season, PSG are currently 15th in France’s 20-team Ligue 1, only just out of danger of relegation. Dortmund ended the German season in ninth place.

Rozehnal is linked with Newcastle, apparently Sam Allardyce wanted him at Bolton before. I dont see anything special about Rozehnal, his performance was poor for NT, but maybe he will be ok in Premiership given his height and physical presence. He surely is not good against faster players but he should be able to deal with crosses. Still he gives up too many free-kicks with his fouling, I wasn't impressed with him when I saw him play for PSG.

Doesn't sound very promising! A few of the papers over here this morning are stating that we're set to sign him. Any information as to what he's like as a player? What he's good at and bad at etc?

Actually Rozehnal isn't bad defender, he is modern-centre back, always try to play football instead of simply kicking the ball into the stands.

He was always praised while playing for Club Brugge and Paris, only in the national team he didn't do well in last few months. Until this saturday's match though, against Wales he was by far our best defender, he was the onlyone of whole squad who actually seemed calm and fine.

I think he should have no problems in adjusting to EPL, and in compare to Bramble he is Ronaldinho

He'd play in pair with Taylor? Who will be starting full-backs in the comming season for Newcastle?

the feeling of belonging,
the pride in your city."

Cheers for the info Pavel, if he does sign he could well play alongside Taylor. Although we've also been linked with Ben Haim so I'm not entirely sure. As for the full-backs I have no idea who we'll start the season with, currently it's Carr and Babayaro although I can't see Allardyce sticking with them. We've been strongly linked with Leighton Baines and have also been linked with Albin Ebondo.

Rozehnal set to sign for Magpies

Rozehnal's representatives say he wants a move to Newcastle
Newcastle are set to sign Czech international defender David Rozehnal from French club Paris St Germain.
Twenty-six-year-old Rozehnal, who played for Czech side Olomouc before moving to Belgium side Bruges and then PSG, has been capped 34 times.

"The definite agreement was reached - David goes to Newcastle," the player's agent Pavel Zika told www.idnes.cz.

According to Zika the Czech defender is due to undergo a medical on Monday before signing a four-year contract.

German club Borussia Dortmund and Spanish side Sevilla had also been interested in Rozehnal, but Newcastle appear to have won the race to sign the Czech international defender.

The Magpies initially had a £2m bid rejected for the Czech international, while Dortmund are believed to have tabled £2.7m.

Rozehnal began his career in his home country with Sigma Olomouc and twice won the Belgian title with Bruges before his move to PSG in 2005.

Newcastle boss Sam Allardyce is keen to bring in central defenders after releasing Titus Bramble, Craig Moore, Oguchi Onyewu as well as left-back Olivier Bernard.

He tried to sign ex-Bolton centre-back Tal Ben Haim but missed out as the Israel international opted to join Chelsea.

Allardyce has also been linked with a move for 33-year-old Liverpool stalwart Sami Hyypia and Marseille skipper Habib Beye.

Hyypia made 29 appearances for the Reds last season but has seen Jamie Carragher and Daniel Agger establish themselves as Liverpool's first-choice centre-back partnership.

Can anyone tell me how good/bad David Rozenhal is? I've not seen much of him and he has just signed for my team Newcastle.

We've always signed crap defenders in the past so i'm hoping Rozenhal isn't another one

I would say he's an average defender. Partnered with another good defender and he'll do fine. He can also play in midfield.

Technical, smart and good to "cut the line" off the ball.
Totally crap to man to man marking , and on freekicks.

A good defender for tactical league.
Not for physical league.

He seems to have problems against quick and fast paced forwards and also he tends to foul a lot near the penalty area. He does have some potential to be very solid player however, in a recent qualifier against Wales he was the best defender. He should be better than Onyewu or Bramble for sure.

Czech eyes Premier education

Newcastle's new signing David Rozehnal is hoping his sojourn in the Premier League will toughen him up.

The Czech Republic international has moved to St James' Park from Paris Saint Germain in a Ł2.9million deal, despite attracting interest from Borussia Dortmund and Sevilla as well.

Rozehnal freely admits he is not the most robust of defenders, but hopes his move to England and the physically demanding Premier League will add a new dimension to his game.

"I believe that the Premiership will give me the toughness that I still don't have at the level I need," Rozehnal told Sport. "I will not get it without hard work. I go there to work hard to improve myself in this attribute. Only if I am not successful, I will start thinking why.

"I started as a striker, then I moved into midfield and eventually I became a defender, that is the main reason [why toughness is lacking].

"Even though, I think I have improved a lot in this attribute. Of course though, it is not there yet."

Magpies boss Sam Allardyce saw off late interest from Sevilla to clinch Rozehnal's signature, whilst Borussia Dortmund were priced out of a bid for the defender.

Rozehnal admits he was happy to choose England, even if he still holds La Liga in great regard. "Any of those other clubs would not have been a disappointment for me," said Rozehnal. "After that though, when I returned from my first visit to Newcastle, I realised that it has really turned out as best as it could. I am excited."

"Of course I am still dreaming [of Spain]. I have always dreamed of Spain and that will not fade away quickly.

"Anyway, what I have managed to see in England so far, I can say that I would not mind if I stayed here for a couple of years."

Exactly.

Just a good player, nothing more.

Was he subbed due to injury/poor play or just a tactical reason?
