Manchester United star set for a Newcastle United switch


A Manchester United star could be set for a switch to Newcastle United, with "negotiations ongoing" between the parties involved.

Just under a week remains before the January transfer window slams shut, and with Anthony Martial's Old Trafford exit said to be imminent, United could see another attacker leave the club before Monday's deadline.

The Red Devils have a surplus in the midfield and attacking positions, which has resulted in a few members of the team struggling for game time. 

One of those fringe players, Jesse Lingard, is now reportedly in talks with the Magpies regarding a potential short-term deal. 

"Newcastle will push again on Jesse Lingard deal in the next hours," transfer expert Fabrizio Romano wrote on Twitter. 

"The Magpies board are working hard to sign Jesse at least until the end of the season, then he'll become a free agent. 

"Negotiations ongoing with both Manchester United and Lingard representatives."

Despite having found form during his loan spell with West Ham United in the second half of the 2020/21 season, Lingard's return to his boyhood club has not yielded the results he will have hoped for as he has not started a single Premier League game in this campaign.  

The 29-year-old appears to be behind the likes of Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho, and Mason Greenwood, among others, in interim boss Ralf Rangnick's pecking order at the club.
