Newcastle's move for Pierre-Michel Lasogga could be resurrected as Hamburg have failed to sign the Hertha Berlin striker.

Lasogga spent last season on loan at Hamburg and had been set to join the Bundesliga side on a permanent basis, despite having held talks with Newcastle.

The 22-year-old had been seemingly set for a move to Hamburg but they have so far refused to match Hertha's reported £10million asking price and he has been ordered to return to Berlin for pre-season training.

Hamburg sporting director Oliver Kreuzer said: "They [demands of Hertha Berlin) are completely unrealistic and definitely unreasonably high.

"It's almost off the roof.

"We should be able to agree a more realistic package given the contract situation of the player."

Newcastle may now decide to reignite their interest in Lasogga, despite previously failing to agree personal terms with the German striker, but boss Alan Pardew is understood to have a number of targets as he seeks additions in attack.
