Newcastle United have returned with a second loan offer for Manchester United’s Jesse Lingard.
Sources say the situation is complicated by United wanting to sell the player this month, given his contract expires in the summer.
However, while Lingard is keen on a move to St James’ Park, he would prefer a loan deal for the time being. It could be that Newcastle have to pay a sizeable loan fee to satisfy United.
Sources say the Magpies are ‘optimistic’ about their chances of signing the 29-year-old this month. They had an initial loan offer rejected on Wednesday.
