Newcastle are ready to cough up for Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard.

The Daily Star says Newcastle and West Ham are on a collision course over Manchester United outcast Jesse Lingard.

The experienced midfielder is one of several players weighing up a departure from Old Trafford this month.

Lingard has barely featured under interim manager Ralf Rangnick.

However, he flourished at West Ham on a six-month loan last term and bagged nine goals in 16 matches.

Newcastle boss Eddie Howe believes the United ace could have a similar impact at St James' Park.

And with Lingard out of contract in the summer, the Toon are willing to hand over in excess of £3million to sign him now.
