Former Manchester United goalkeeper Tomasz Kuszczak has revealed that Newcastle United tried to sign him on loan in January.

Newcastle were on the lookout for a new keeper both last summer and in January, and eventually brought in Martin Dubravka on loan from Sparta Prague to great effect.

Dubravka has subsequently signed a permanent contract at St James’ Park, but Birmingham’s Kuszczak claims he was one of the keepers Newcastle had previously been interested in signing.

But Kuszczak, who was also a target for Derby County, says Birmingham rejected the approach from Rafa Benitez’s Newcastle.

Newcastle United keeper a target for Leeds United

  Newcastle United keeper a target for Leeds United Championship side Leeds United are interested in signing Newcastle United goalkeeper Karl Darlow, according to HITC. Leeds are desperate for a new shot-stopper this summer with their current options having been less than impressive between the posts last season. Newcastle look set to sell Darlow in the summer with Leeds keen on taking him to Elland Road. Newcastle boss Rafael Benitez has several sturdy goalkeeping options in his squad which has seen Darlow fall down the ranks at St James’ Park. Darlow is a proven ‘keeper at Championship level and would likely by first choice in goal if Leeds were to complete a deal for him. Newcastle were close to selling Darlow last summer but their lack of activity in the transfer window left them keeping hold of the -27-year-old. Swansea are also said to be interested in Darlow who it is believed would cost in the region of £2million.

Speaking to Przeglad Sportowy , he said: “In the winter transfer window, I had a loan offer from Newcastle, and Derby also approached me. However, Birmingham said that I should stay at the club.”

Kuszczak previously spent six years at Old Trafford, making over 60 appearances for United, but he has not played in the Premier League since 2012.

He has since gone onto play for Watford, Brighton, Wolves and now Birmingham, but has not made a first-team appearance since last November.

The 36-year-old has been told he can leave the club by manager Garry Monk and he will consider his options before deciding whether to take up the opportunity.

He added: “My contract is still valid for a year, but the situation has changed a little, because after the season I received a green light to be transferred.

“I am waiting for a signal from my representatives. Other managers already know that a transfer option has appeared.

“I am calm, if there are no good offers then I will wait for a year, then I will be a free agent.”

Premier League side preparing bid for Newcastle striker .
Fulham are stepping up their interest in Newcastle United striker Aleksandar Mitrovic following their promotion to the top flight. The Mirror claims that the Cottagers are preparing a bid to turn his loan deal into a permanent one. Mitrovic only joined Fulham on loan during the January transfer window but made an instant impact. The Serbian striker would go on to play a key role in the club’s promotion to the Premer League, with a number of inspiring performances. Fulham are hoping to sign both Mitrovic and Matt Targett, who was on loan from Southampton last season. Newcastle are open to the idea of selling the Serbian forward this summer, with the player no longer in the first-team picture under Rafa Benitez. The transfer would also bring in further funds for the Magpies to strengthen their squad during the transfer window, with a new striker on Benitez’s wishlist.
