Newcastle United have been offered the chance to take Aaron Ramsey on loan for the rest of the season with a view to a permanent deal in the summer, 90min understands.

The Magpies are set to complete a deal for Atletico Madrid defender Kieran Trippier with the England international currently undergoing a medical, and they are looking at other transfers to complete in the meantime.

One deal which has been offered to Newcastle is for Ramsey with Juventus desperate to get him off their wage bill.

Newcastle are keen on landing Ramsey, with head coach Eddie Howe understood to be a big fan of the Wales international. The club are ready to swallow the vast majority of his wages, which are believed to be over £200,000-a-week.

Ramsey, who just turned 31, has 18 months left on his current deal and has been told he can leave Juventus having started just one league game this season - 90min has been told that they would even be happy for him to depart on a free transfer.

Given Newcastle’s precarious Premier League position, a loan would likely be the preferred option and Juve are willing to sanction any deal which may see him move on.

Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri confirmed in a press conference on Wednesday that Ramsey is an 'outgoing player'.

90min understands that Ramsey does have interest from other Premier League clubs and is ready to assess all options before deciding his future.

Everton have a long standing interest in the midfielder, while Leicester, Wolves, Crystal Palace and Leeds are among others looking at Ramsey.

There is also interest from Major League Soccer with a number of American clubs ready to offer Ramsey a move across the Atlantic.

We understand that the final decision will be left with Ramsey and his representatives, who are expected to confirm their plans to Juve in the next week.
