However, it’s claimed the Magpies are now ready to part with their star shot-stopper for less than £4million, with his contract is into its final twelve months.

The St. James’ Park outfit are certainly well endowed in the goalkeeping department, with Karl Darlow, Rob Elliot, Freddie Woodman and new signing Mats Selz all at Rafa Benitez’s disposal, and can afford to let one of their highest earners leave for Turin.
