Newcastle United remain on the lookout for one more signing.
While it has been a productive summer even despite FFP issues with three first-team players brought to the club, Eddie Howe has confirmed he would love to bring another player in.
Well, according to the Daily Telegraph, a plan is being formed.

The report adds that Newcastle have been given reason to believe the 25-year-old is open to the move to St James’ Park and could structure a deal in favourable payment terms.
There is said to be a confidence a breakthrough can be found on an initial loan deal with an obligation to buy at the end of the season, which could help navigate FFP problems.
There’s clearly a player in Cucurella
While life at Chelsea hasn’t gone smoothly since a £62m move from Brighton last summer, Cucurella did impress during his time on the south coast.
Also able to operate in central defence too, he certainly wouldn’t be the first to have seen his career stall at Stamford Bridge.
On potentially favourable terms, perhaps a move to Newcastle and working under Howe – who has a proven track record of yielding improvement out of players – could help restart his career.
