The Mirror have excited Newcastle United fans in the Football Transfer Tavern this evening.
This is after it emerged that Magpies boss Alan Pardew is eyeing Burnley’s Danny Ings for a cut-price January fee as the former AFC Bournemouth man’s contract expires at the end of the season.
Rather interestingly, the Toon Army will be facing Ings in the Premier League fixture against Burnley this evening.
The 22-year-old has been subject to a lot of speculation in the tavern recently and it is believed that with his contract running down, he is available for a measly £3 million.
The Magpies are supposedly topping the list of interested clubs and if Newcastle choose not to pay a fee in the window, Ings is eligible to sign a pre-contract agreement next month meaning he would agree to join the club at the end of the season for free.
Pardew said: “In Ings they have a player who is impressing at the moment.
“We get linked with all sorts of players, I don’t know if he’s been linked with us but we certainly haven’t bid or made an offer for him in a previous window.
“He’s a Burnley player and I think they would find it disrespectful that you would ask that question.”
