Newcastle United remain hopeful of finalising a deal for Manchester United's Jesse Lingard by Monday's transfer deadline.

90min understands Lingard has agreed terms with Newcastle on a move that will see the England international arrive on an initial deal until the end of the season.

It is thought that despite the original deal falling through earlier this month, the lines of communication between Newcastle and Manchester United remained open, and there is confidence from both sides that the transfer will happen.

Previously United's demands were too much for Newcastle, 90min having revealed that the Magpies would have to pay more than £10m to secure Lingard's services.

Talks then broke down between the two clubs, but United are still looking to move Lingard on in what is turning out to be a busy week of outgoings. Anthony Martial has joined Sevilla on loan, Amad Diallo has gone to Rangers and Donny van de Beek is on the cusp of joining Everton on loan.

90min now understands that talks are advanced as they have been at any point and there is now real optimism at St James' Park that Lingard could join their fight against relegation.

Newcastle have brought in Kieran Trippier and Chris Wood to date, while deals for Bruno Guimaraes and Dan Burn are imminent.

90min can also reveal that Lingard is not the only deal been discussed between the two Uniteds as Newcastle are also looking at goalkeeper Dean Henderson, having previously spoken with Arsenal about Bernd Leno.
