Magpies boss Alan Pardew has been indebted to loaned in forward Loic Remy this season, the QPR man netting eight goals in ten Premier League appearances, and with Papiss Cisse continuing to struggle in front of goal there is certainly room for further attacking nous at St James’ Park.
Stoke City and Hull City are also keen on the Republic of Ireland international but a move to Newcastle United would presumably be the most tempting of the trio of potential offers on the 26 year old’s table.
Long has netted 22 goals in 80 appearances for West Brom, prior to which he scored 55 goals for Reading.
