Newcastle closing in on a deal to sign free agent Jeff Hendrick after the midfielder left Burnley

Newcastle United are close to agreement with former Burnley midfielder Jeff Hendrick.

The Republic of Ireland international is a free agent and had attracted interest from AC Milan earlier in the year.

Manager Steve Bruce is keen to bolster his squad with British signings and sees Hendrick as a valuable addition with his vast Premier League experience and versatility.

The 28-year old Hendrick also has interest from Aston Villa.

Bruce has also shown interest in the likes of Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson and Liverpool’s £20m-rated winger Harry Wilson. Wigan’s Antonee Robinson who is set for Sheffield United was also discussed but a limited budget for fees and wages will restrict Bruce’s ambitions.

Newcastle goalkeeper Freddie Woodman is discussing a contract extension at the club. The 23-year-old is likely to rejoin Swansea City on another season loan once his contract is agreed.
