Liverpool outcast Jose Enrique is in talks over a possible return to his former club Newcastle United.
As reported by the Mirror, it has been claimed that the right-back, who has endured a torrid past 12 months at Anfield, could join Steve McClaren's side on a temporary deal until the end of the season.
In fact, the same report claims that Liverpool are prepared to pay up some of the player's contract as they attempt to move him on.

The Mirror claim that Enrique is currently earning as much as £65,000-a-week on Merseyside, so it's not entirely surprising that the club's hierarchy are hoping he agrees to sign for Newcastle.
Enrique, 30, has had a number of injury problems over the last year or so and still hasn't played a Premier League game this season. The Liverpool faithful have only seen the experienced defender in action in the FA Cup under the guidance of Jurgen Klopp.
In fact, during the Brendan Rodgers regime, he featured on just four occasions for the Reds in England's elite division last term.
It remains to be seen as to whether the Newcastle hierarchy manage to get the deal over the line, but the transfer would certainly be a welcome one for Liverpool fans.
It's clear for all to see that Enrique doesn't have a long-term future at the Reds, so it's best for everyone involved if the transfer comes to prominence over the next few hours.
