Middlesbrough are in talks with neighbors Newcastle United over a deadline deal for midfielder Jeff Hendrick, TEAMtalk understands.

The Irish national team player has been told he can leave St James’ Park this month as Eddie Howe looks set to free up space on his squad. The 29-year-old former Burnley man has barely been under Howe since taking charge.

There followed just 11 minutes of Premier League action for Hendrick, who was more often in and out of the side when Steve Bruce was at the bottom.

And with Magpies after announcing the signing of Bruno Guimaraes, his position is set to decline further.

As such, he is now set to replace Tyneside with Teesside.

An initial loan deal is believed to have been agreed, as Chris Wilder appears to be strengthening his options ahead of a late promotion.

Boro currently occupies the last play-off spot and is eight points from the second automatic promotion spot.

Wilder had targeted his former Sheffield United lieutenant John Lundstram at Rangers.

But as that deal now looks unlikely, they have been pushing to land Hendrick and he could be an important addition to their opportunities in the middle of the park.

Newcastle move to Man Utd expelled

Meanwhile, Newcastle are reportedly “hoping” to finish one of two Manchester United outcasts, which could subsequently lead to a departure.

With so many stars battling for minutes at Old Trafford, it looked like a potentially fertile hunting ground for Magpies in the January transfer window. They have in fact requested a number of transfers with United.

However, Donny van de Beek did not want to join. And the demands on Jesse Lingard have proven to be too great.

When the St James’ Park hierarchy compiled their last gasp list of goals, Lingard was included again.

After all, they can still borrow a player from another Premier League club. They have not yet occupied this place in their squad.

But Lingard no longer seems to be a priority. According to Manchester Evening News, it’s Dean Henderson that Toon wants.

It is claimed that an agreement is underway. It would see Newcastle pay the goalkeeper’s £ 100,000 weekly salary plus a loan fee.
