Newcastle United transfer news: Ex-Bournemouth and Everton forward eyed for summer deal
Newcastle United have been linked with a summer move for ex-Bournemouth and Everton forward Josh King.
Reports over the weekend suggested ‘formal talks’ could take place within the next few weeks with free agent King as Steve Bruce weighs up his summer transfer options.
King, a 29-year-old Norway international, is a free agent having left Everton following a short-term deal.
Meanwhile, Newcastle have again been credited with interest in Scotland international defender Jack Hendry.
As per 90min, the 26-year-old is set to join Belgian side Oostende permanently from Celtic after his £2million purchase clause was activated on the back of his hugely successful loan spell.
However, Oostende have reportedly promised Hendry that he will be sold for a quick gain with Newcastle, Leeds, Burnley, West Brom and Sheffield United keen, as well as teams in Germany and the Netherlands.
The sale of Hendry is expected to fetch around £10million – handing Oostende a tidy £8m profit.
