Former Newcastle striker Faustino Asprilla has turned down the opportunity to star in a porn film.

We brought you the news earlier this week that Newcastle United cult hero Faustino Asprilla had been invited to star in a South American porn movie.

Well here is the, erm, climax, to the unusual tale.

Asprilla has turned down the offer.

He told Italian radio station Radio Blu (yes really):

"(It's) one of the most curious things I have been proposed in my life but I'd definitely never accept that."

Asprilla was offered the €7,700 for a week's work by a South American adult entertainment company, with director Andrea Garcia telling the Argentine press: "We are convinced that the lifestyle he leads and controversial media he causes is vital for us to make a proposal."

He now will have to look elsewhere. 

We hear Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa is available for work for a couple of weeks...
