Newcastle United are prepared to pay a loan fee for Manchester United forward Jesse Lingard as well as the player’s full wages.
Newcastle are still pushing hard to sign the England international before the end of the January transfer window.
However, they are still awaiting a final decision from Manchester United, on whether or not they will sanction a move for Lingard in this window.
The 29-year-old can leave for free in the summer and has no intention of remaining at Old Trafford beyond this season.
He is desperate to play football and would welcome the opportunity to speak to Newcastle, as he weighs up his options.
Newcastle looking elsewhere after Carlos talks stall
Meanwhile, Newcastle are looking elsewhere for defensive reinforcements after becoming increasingly frustrated by Sevilla in their attempts to sign centre-back Diego Carlos.
It is thought Newcastle were initially informed the player would be available for around €30m, however the Spanish club have increased the asking price numerous times.
Newcastle are beginning to feel that whatever they offer, Sevilla will continue to waste their time.
It’s a difficult situation for Carlos who had his heart set on a move to England. At 29, this was a big opportunity for him to secure one final big contract and as Sky Sports News reported last week, he even told Sevilla he wanted to leave.
Sevilla are currently second in La Liga and chasing their first title in 75 years.
Newcastle have significant finances available, but will not be taken advantage of in the transfer window.
Who will be on the move in January?
The January transfer window opens on Saturday January 1, 2022 and closes at 11pm on Monday January 31.
