Former Manchester United goalkeeper, David De Gea, could be set for a shock return to the Premier League.
Newcastle manager, Eddie Howe is in the transfer market after Nick Pope was ruled out for up to five months.
Pope dislocated his left shoulder during their 1-0 win at home to Manchester United on Saturday.
The 31-year-old is now expected to be sidelined until April, according to the Telegraph.
While Pope fights to be fit in time for the closing stages of the season, Howe will in the meantime need to find a new No.1.
Although former first-choice goalkeeper Martin Dubravka replaced Pope on Saturday and Liverpool flop Loris Karius is still at St James’ Park, the ex-Burnley star’s proper replacement is more likely to be someone who arrives in the January transfer window.
De Gea has not played for any team since his contract with United expired in the summer.
