Newcastle United have made a fresh approach for Manchester United‘s Jesse Lingard, according to a report.
The Magpies have been looking to bolster their squad throughout the month in a bid to help aid their fight for survival within the Premier League, and the club have already made two signings.
Kieran Trippier and Chris Wood have both joined Eddie Howe within this transfer window, but the new manager is hoping to bring in several more faces before it shuts next Monday.
According to The Telegraph, Newcastle have made a fresh approach to Manchester United in a bid to sign Lingard, who is out of contract with the Red Devils at the end of the season.
The Magpies are willing to pay a loan fee of £6m in order to bring him in until the end of the season, while the club is also happy to pay 100% of his wages.
Howe was able to guide his team to a crucial 1-0 victory at the weekend against Leeds United, with Newcastle now sat in 18th place within the division, just one point away from safety.
