Newcastle are being linked with more players each day, as January’s transfer window approaches, and Real Valladolid centre-back Mohammed Salisu is the latest, according to Spanish publication Diario De Valladolid.

Salisu is a 6ft 2in defender, who has broken into the Spanish club’s first team this season, making 14 appearances in La Liga so far.

Salisu is believed to have a €12 million (£10.3m) release clause, which is why he is attracting so much attention from so many interested clubs.

According to the report, other than Newcastle, Premier League clubs Manchester United, Everton, Southampton and Norwich are monitoring the player.

Spanish sides, as well as Bayer Leverkusen, Shalke 04, Wolfsburg and Mainz of Germany are also in the frame to try to sign the 20-year-old.
