Newcastle United are chasing Crystal Palace striker Wilfried Zaha.

The People says Newcastle boss Alan Pardew plans to swoop for young Palace sensation Zaha – but faces a fight with Stoke City in a £3million battle.

Eagles chief Dougie Freedman turned down Stoke’s approach in the last window when the Potters were willing to pay £1.5m and that decision has paid off.

Now the Geordies are poised to offer twice that sum and with Stoke sure to respond, Freedman will have a tough fight to hold on to his starlet.
