Jets not keen on Zamora

Newcastle Jets aren't interested in bringing Premier League striker Bobby Zamora to the A-League.

The former England international has sounded out a move to Australia after being released by Queens Park Rangers.

The Jets are coached by Scott Miller, who worked with Zamora at Fulham in the Premier League for four seasons.

Newcastle confirmed on Saturday that the 34-year old forward had been offered to them.

"Newcastle Jets are working diligently to identify players who fit the club's key criteria and budget to join the squad,” Jets CEO Mitchell Murphy said.

“This process is being led by head coach Scott Miller and senior assistant coach Jean-Paul de Marigny. Any suggestion that Zamora is set to join the Jets is, at this point at least, purely speculative."

FourFourTwo understands that Zamora isn’t on the Jets' radar for the 2015-2016 season.

Sources have confirmed that the focus of the Jets' recruitment is not on the ex-Tottenham and Brighton striker.

Zamora turns 35 in January and has played 17 years of professional football.

He has well-documented hip problems that he has contended with for the past three years and suffered a broken leg in 2010.

Despite battling injury, Zamora made 33 appearances last season.

The Jets have only 14 first-team players on their books and are expected to dip into the transfer market soon.

The club also has three visa spots currently free and no marquee player.
