Newcastle United will reportedly listen to offers for striker Emmanuel Riviere at the end of the season.

The 26-year-old joined the Magpies from AS Monaco for £6m in 2014, and has since then been on the fringes of the first-team.

A report from The Mail suggests that the Tyneside outfit have lost patience with the player, and are unlikely to block his exit during the summer transfer window.

It is added that Riviere is a £3m target for Ligue 1 side Bordeaux, who are expected to have a major squad overhaul next term.

Riviere has made just 20 starts for the Premier League outfit.
