Could Steven Gerrard be set to switch Los Angeles for Newcastle?

Newcastle United are one of the favourites to sign Steven Gerrard after the midfielder all but confirmed his LA Galaxy exit.

The former England and Liverpool skipper posted a picture on his Instagram account last night with the caption "Special place, incredible view I will miss you LA #lalaland".

And with the post virtually confirming his MLS exit, the rumour mill has gone into overdrive.

While the obvious links of a return to Liverpool surfaced, Newcastle United also figure highly in the bookmakers' odds.

United have seen their odds slashed to just 4/1 with Ladbrokes to bring Gerrard 'home' in the January transfer window.

Gerrard won the Champions League under United boss Rafa Benitez in 2005.

Favourites to land the midfielder are Scottish Premiership champions Celtic, who are managed by Brendan Rodgers, another former Gerrard charge. They are priced at 7/2.

The Reds are second at 4/1, with United next in the market.
