Today’s round up of all NUFC related transfer talk:
- NUFC are in ‘pole position’ to sign Burnley striker Andre Gray – he is understood to be keen on a move to Tyneside and could be available at a fee in the region of £10m with just 12-months left on his current contract.
- Spanish reports continue to link Leganes midfielder Gabriel Pires with a move to Newcastle this summer – it is believed that Rafa Benitez wanted him in January and could activate his £6m release clause.
- Michy Batshuayi is being tracked by NUFC according to reports in Belgium – the striker could be available on loan this summer after struggling for game time at Chelsea last season.
- Rumoured NUFC target Ben Gibson has admitted he wants to stay in the Premier League following Middlesbrough’s relegation to the Championship – one to watch with Benitez in the market for a centre-back this summer?
- Former striker target Sebastien Haller has admitted he turned down the opportunity to sign for Newcastle last summer as he felt it was “premature” to move to a club who were not yet in the Premier League – he’s recently signed for Bundesliga side, Frankfurt from Dutch side FC Utrecht.
