The Mirror have reported that the Denmark international is high on Eddie Howe’s list of midfield targets with a £30million move being touted.

The 26-year-old has been virtually ever-present for Spurs in the Premier League since signing from Southampton for £15million in the summer of 2020.

Newcastle’s midfielders have been crucial in helping the club climb out of relegation trouble and into the top half of the table in 2022 with the likes of Joelinton, Jonjo Shelvey, Joe Willock and January arrival Bruno Guimaraes all impressing.

But Howe is keen to strengthen his midfield further in the summer with Hojbjerg now emerging as a potential target once the summer transfer window opens on June 10.

Liverpool, Watford and Leeds United are also among some of the other clubs credited with an interest in the teenage full-back.
