Premier League Defender Set To Become One Of Newcastle's New Owners' First Signings, Jesse Lingard Also Discussed

A Premier League defender is set to become one of Newcastle United's new owners' first signings, with a stunning move for Jesse Lingard also discussed.

A Saudi-Arabian backed £305 million takeover of Newcastle has been completed.

The takeover brings to an end Mike Ashley's tumultuous 14-year spell as owner.

'The Magpies' have since been linked with a host of new talent, with reports claiming a transfer for Philippe Coutinho could be on the cards in January.

But, according to the Telegraph, Burnley star James Tarkowski is expected to become one of the club's first signings under their new owners.

The 28-year-old is understood to be keen on a move to St. James' Park.

The reports continues by claiming that there is a gentleman's agreement in place with Burnley that the club will not stand in the way of a transfer in January.

A transfer fee shouldn't be a problem for Newcastle who have a reported war chest of £190 million.

While a fee for Tarkowski has not been reported, the Englishman will be free to leave at the end of the season as his current contract expires.

Lingard, 28, is another player who has been linked with Newcastle since their takeover.

But it is not known if the Manchester United man would want to join after he turned down a loan move to the North East side in January, opting to sign for West Ham instead.

The midfielder returned to Old Trafford following a prolific spell with the Hammers last season.

Further reports suggest Newcastle have also joined the race to sign Paris Saint-Germain's Mauro Icardi.
