Skysports.com understands Newcastle are preparing a January move for Leeds winger Max Gradel.
The 23-year-old has been in sparkling form for the Whites this season, bringing him to the attention of Premier League sides.
He only completed a permanent switch to Elland Road 12 months ago, having shone during a loan switch from Leicester
Gradel penned a two-and-a-half-year contract upon his arrival, which is set to run until the summer of 2012.
His fine form has thrust him into the spotlight, though, and the top flight vultures are beginning to circle. (Sky Sports)
Alan Pardew will apparently have to work within a tight transfer budget this January and if he hopes to strengthen his St James’ Park squad he will either have to sell before he buys or look for relatively cheap signings and with that in mind it appears that Newcastle United boss wants Leeds United’s in form winger Max Gradel.
The Ivorian has been in fine form thus far this season and would reportedly cost around £6m to nab but the former Leicester City attacker may be keen to stay at Elland Road and see if he can make it to the Premier League without having to make a move.
