The 24-year-old signed for Porto in 2019 for £6 million, with the forward enjoying a prolific start to the new season.

Newcastle sit precariously in a relegation spot and have yet to register a win in the league this season.

The club have recently parted ways with Steve Bruce, who took charge of the first game of the club's new era.

They lost 3-2 to Tottenham, with Graeme Jones set to handle managerial duties for their next match against Crystal Palace on Saturday.
