Newcastle are among several clubs interested in Manchester United youngster Joshua King, according to the striker's agent.
The 20-year-old Norway international is under contract at Old Trafford until 2013 but has yet to establish himself in Sir Alex Ferguson's first team.
King, who has had to overcome a spate of injuries, spent time on loan last season at Hull City and has also in his career made temporary moves to Borussia Monchengladbach and Preston North End.
He has been linked with a permanent move away from Manchester in January and Newcastle are said to be interested after Alan Pardew's club were already being linked with Molde's Jo Inge Berget.
But King's agent, Jim Solbakken, who also represents Berget, does not think his client wants to leave last season's Premier League runners-up.
"I have discussed attacking options with Newcastle." Solbakken told VG.
"There are many clubs who are interested in Joshua King but he is where he should be."
"He could have joined many clubs during the summer but got confidence in the Manchester United organisation."
