Sky Tyne and Wear has also learned Australian defender Curtis Good is expected to have a medical at Newcastle in the next couple of days ahead of his move from A-League side Melbourne Heart believed to be for around £400,000.
One of the players Good will have to compete with for a first team place is Steven Taylor and reports in The Journal suggest that he will soon be back in action after his long-term achilles tendon injury.
Getafe midfielder Abdelaziz Barrada has also said he would like to “test himself against the best players” should he move to the Premier League. Barrada would cost around £3.1m and is aware of interest in him from both Newcastle and Everton. (Skysports.com)

Newcastle boss Alan Pardew has also joined the race to sign France striker Loic Remy from Marseille, with Arsenal and Tottenham also thought to be keen. French international Remy will cost around £15m. (Daily Star)
Michael Turner's move from Sunderland to Norwich City may go through today after the defender travelled to East Anglia for a medical yesterday.
The 28-year-old is in the final year of his contract at the Stadium of Light and will command a fee should the move go through.
Sunderland’s search for strikers could take them to free-agent Eidur Gudjohnsen, 33, who is attracting interest from numerous Premier League clubs. Gudjohnsen has played in the Premier League for Bolton Wanderers, Chelsea, Fulham, Tottenham and Stoke City as well as Barcelona and Monaco.
Sunderland are also in the running for Michael Owen who was released by Manchester United this summer. Owen, 32, has previously played for Liverpool, Real Madrid and Newcastle United.
Manager Martin O’Neill is also hoping to keep midfielder David Meyler amid speculation that former Sunderland boss Steve Bruce is interested in taking him to Hull City on loan. (Sunderland Echo)
Meyler has missed large portions of the last two seasons due to knee injuries but has featured regularly in the side in pre-season and has previously stated his desire to make his mark under O'Neill.
Bruce is also supposedly interested in signing winger Ahmed Elmohamady but the Egyptian, like Meyler wants to stay at Sunderland and fight for his place.
