NEWCASTLE have been told to splash out £50million if they want to sign Nathan Ake from Manchester City.

Manchester City are demanding £50million to let Nathan Ake leave

The Toon boss has made a second inquiry about Ake after City gave him short shrift when he first asked in January.

Bayer Leverkusen Moussa Diaby is another player Newcastle have enquired about but the German side are demanding £40m to let him go.
