Newcastle United are set to announce two deadline-day arrivals with a decision to be made on Jesse Lingard from Manchester United with West Ham also interested

Defender Dan Burn has agreed terms to come from Brighton & Hove Albion for £ 13 million and is on Newcastle’s training ground to complete his doctorate.

Matt Targett is also set to get on loan from Aston Villa until the end of the season after completing a doctor at Tyneside today.

These are the two signings that Newcastle have actually completed so far, but the club appear to be looking to sign a third player.

But as one door closes, another door opens or reopens in this case, as Newcastle remain in the hunt to pick up Jesse Lingard on loan from Manchester United. The Gazette understands that the two clubs are still in dialogue on a deal until the end of the season.

The Magpies initially distanced themselves from a move for the 29-year-old after The Red Devils demanded a £ 12million surcharge if Lingard were to help keep Newcastle in the Premier League.

Lingard is out of contract at the end of the current campaign and is also attracting interest from West Ham United – the club he scored nine goals in 16 Premier League matches for while on loan last season.

It is understood that the player is desperate to leave Manchester United given his lack of first-team options, and new terms can still be agreed with Newcastle regarding a loan fee before tonight’s deadline at. 23.00.
