Newcastle have made an enquiry about Manchester United youngster Ravel Morrison.
Press Association Sport understands there has been contact between the two clubs over the 18-year-old midfielder, who is out of contract at the end of the season.
No talks over a new deal have so far taken place and should no offer materialise, he would be able to leave the club on a free transfer, although United would be entitled to compensation of around £300,000. However, it is understood the Magpies' interest is yet to go any further than that initial enquiry.
