Magpies court England under-21 international.
Newcastle United are said to be lining up a cut price move for Burnley striker Danny Ings when the January transfer window opens next month, according to the Daily Mirror.
The 22-year-old is out of contract at Turf Moor next summer and could be available for as little as £3m in the new year and Newcastle are said to be heading up a list of clubs interested in his signature.
Ings will be able to pen a pre-contract agreement next month and Alan Pardew is ready to force the move though in order to strengthen his own front line.
The striker will also have the chance to impress the Magpies this week as Burnley entertain the injury ravaged Toon Army.
Ings has been in fine form this season, netting four in his last five games for the struggling Clarets, as well as another two whilst on international duty with the under-21s.
“In Ings they have a player who is impressing at the moment,” Pardew said.
“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.”
