Newcastle United are reportedly considering a £2m offer for Crystal Palace full back Nathaniel Clyne.

The former England U19 defender has been earning rave reviews at Selhurst Park, with a host of clubs in the Barclays Premier League and Npower Championship thought to be keen on the 20-year-old.

Winner of the FourFourTwo Young Player of the Year in 2010 and Crystal Palace Player of the Year last term, Clyne is thought to be on the Birmingham City radar, whilst Wolves boss Mick McCarthy has also shown an interest in the past.

Newcastle United are the latest club to join the chase, with the Daily Mirror claiming Alan Pardew is willing to pay £2 million for the player.

The paper goes on to claim the Magpies have made an initial enquiry over the possibilities of bringing the player to St James' Park, and will follow that up with a bid providing the Newcastle United boss 'gets the nod' over spending some of the club's budget on Clyne.

Pardew has been linked with a string of strikers this summer, but the Toon boss is looking to strengthen in a number of areas on the pitch before the season kicks off in August.


“We’re looking at getting one or two more players in before the window closes, but we’ve also got a big squad," said the Newcastle United boss.

“We need to move one or two on – that’s where we are. One or two players aren’t going to get the first team action they deserve for the type of player they are.

“They’ll be better off getting first team football elsewhere, be it on loan or permanently.”

Mevlut Erdinc, Karim Ziani and Andrew Taylor have already been linked with a move to Newcastle this summer, and plenty more activity is tipped to take place on Tyneside this summer.
