Aston Villa striker Andreas Weimann, one of the stars of last night's Mackem humiliation, figures on Newcastle’s transfer shortlist.
The Tynesiders are monitoring Weimann’s situation at Villa Park, where talks on a new deal for the Austria international have stalled.
Weimann – who has scored 12 goals for Paul Lambert’s struggling team – has just one more year left on his contract.
And Newcastle are among the clubs ready to move for Wiemann, who has been regularly watched by club scouts this season.
