Toon expresses interest in Barnes of Leicester, but any notion of an agreement is premature.
Harvey Barnes, a winger for Leicester, has garnered interest from Newcastle.
The 25-year-old hasn’t received a bid, though, and a trade may yet happen.
Reports that an agreement is imminent are unfounded.
Barnes is rumoured to be eager to move to St. James’ Park, and if Newcastle match their asking price, he will be free to leave relegated Leicester.
When Newcastle met Leicester while he was in charge, Eddie Howe always portrayed him as a serious threat to his players.
Newcastle has only acquired Sandro Tonali from AC Milan for £55 million so far this summer.
Karius and Dummett extend their contracts with Newcastle
The contracts of Paul Dummett and Loris Karius at Newcastle have been extended through the summer of 2024.
Dummett, 31, only appeared in one game for Newcastle last year, a second-round EFL Cup match against Tranmere played 11 months prior.
owing to Nick Pope’s suspension and Mark Dubravka’s ineligibility owing to a cup tie, Karius also made one appearance for the Magpies during the previous season, in the EFL Cup final loss to Manchester United.
