Heerenveen striker Alfred Finnbogason wants to hear from Newcastle

Newcastle United are eyeing Heerenveen striker Alfred Finnbogason.

The People says top Magpies scout Graham Carr was spotted at the Abe Lenstra Stadion on Thursday, where he saw the 24-year-old score twice in his team's 3-0 Dutch Cup victory over FC Twente.

Finnbogason turned down the chance to join Celtic in a £5million deal in the last transfer window, and Heerenveen manager, Dutch legend Marco van Basten, has dangled a new and more lucrative contract in front of him in a bid to keep him.

But the Icelander is hanging back and would love the chance to try his luck in the Premier League with Newcastle.
