... it's nothing new.
Alan Pardew, ex-Southampton manager, has spoken about the player often, and there was a rumour he was going to sign the player 18 months ago.
The Mirror says the Magpies and their Premier League rivals West Ham are keeping an eye on the 26-year-old’s situation, as the Saints dither over offering him a new contract.
But regard it as "old news" tagged onto a player who is looking for a way out of the club.
Would Pardew be interested?
It depends what funds he gets in the summer, and having spent £22m in January, he won't have anywhere near that come May.
And the question is ... can Puncheon speak FRENCH?
