Newcastle are in negotiations with Cardiff striker Jay Bothroyd.
Bothroyd is out of contract in the summer and has been linked with Fulham, Birmingham, Blackburn and Everton but Magpies boss Alan Pardew fancies his chances.
The 28-year-old Bothroyd, who made his England debut against France in November, could expect to treble his £10,000-a-week wages by moving to St James’ Park.

Jay Bothroyd’s footballing journey has been a long and determined one and his first international cap, in England’s friendly with France November, was a deserved one and showed just how far the former Arsenal youth team player had come. After all his first senior call up was a full nine years after his Under 21 international debut and came off the back of a sparkling start to the season at Cardiff City, 15 goals from 19 starts, form that has now led the Islington born striker to a potential route back into the Premier League.
Many sources are stating that the fee Newcastle United will be looking to snap up the 28 year old for is a bargain £2m, and if the former Perugia, Charlton and Wolves man does make the move to St James’ Park, who would bet against the burly striker making it as a Magpie.
Some believe that the potential acquisition may mean that Andy Carroll may be on his way out but such talk seems a bit of a stretch of the imagination as clearly the young Gateshead born marksman is Pardew’s prized possession and he would not be willing to sell, a fact that he has repeated ad infinitum.
