Goalkeeper Karl Darlow is reportedly looking to join Leeds United next month after falling down the pecking order at Newcastle.
The 28-year-old has not played in a Premier League match this season and he is one of four keepers that remain on the books at St James’ Park.

Martin Dubravka remains the No.1 under boss Rafa Benitez and he has played in every Premier League game this season.
Darlow was first linked with Leeds earlier this month but he is now interested in the switch when the transfer window opens on January 1.
Leeds are eager to secure a loan move, with a view to a permanent deal at Elland Road in the summer.
The Whites want more competition for Bailey Peacock-Farrell and Darlow’s four-year stay at Newcastle could soon be coming to an end.
