The 24-year-old is currently on loan from Chelsea FC but is due to return to Stamford Bridge at the end of the season.
And speaking after the 2-0 victory over Wigan, Magpies boss Rafa Benitez remained tight-lipped as to whether he will sign the player on a permanent deal in January, merely telling the Newcastle Chronicle, “We don’t talk about the market now.”
Meanwhile Fulham FC have made a 'tentative enquiry' for HNK Hajduk Split midfielder Nicholas Llanos, according to The Daily Star.
The 20-year-old central midfielder could be available for transfer after failing to break into the first team picture at the Croatian team.
It is reported Palace manager Alan Pardew is in the market for a striker to provide cover for star man Christian Benteke following the season-ending injury suffered by Connor Wickham.
Gestede has fallen out of favour under new boss Steve Bruce, starting only three of the manager’s ten matches in charge, and is behind Jonathan Kodjia in the pecking order at Villa Park.
Although Leeds United look destined to lose Charlie Taylor with the player into the final six months of his contract, the Elland Road outfit are determined not to let him go cheap in January.
According to The Guardian, the club are asking for upto £6 million for the talented full-back who has refused to sign a new contract.
The 33-year-old has impressed during his stay at the bet365 Stadium with his loan deal set to expire on January 3 which is putting off Stoke boss Mark Hughes from making a permanent move.
But with Jack Butland still out injured, Hughes is keen to tie up a deal for the stopper as soon as possible.
