Roeder 'working hard' to win Kuyt race

Newcastle boss Glenn Roeder has admitted he faces competition if he is to bring Dutch striker Dirk Kuyt to St James' Park.

Roeder will be in Dublin on Wednesday to watch the Feyenoord hitman in action for his country once again but knows a player who has been linked with Liverpool among other clubs throughout the summer has options.

Speaking on BBC Radio Newcastle, Roeder said: 'He is not the quickest striker I have ever seen in my life, but there is no doubt he knows how to score a goal.

'He is a very, very hard working player, and his body language on the pitch suggests he is the sort of player you would like in your dressing room. He is very committed to the team effort.

'There are lots of plusses as far as Dirk Kuyt is concerned, but I do know we are not the only club who are interested in him.

'Another club, in the top four, are very strongly interested in him.

'We would like to find the possibility of bringing this particular player to Newcastle, and we are working hard on that at the moment.'

The recruitment of a striker to replace retired skipper Alan Shearer is Roeder's main priority as the start of the new Premiership season approaches with £17million man Michael Owen out injured.
