Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew is interested in Bolton Wanderers midfielder Mark Davies.

The Evening Chronicle says Pardew ran the rule over the 24-year-old on Saturday at the Reebok Stadium during the Trotters’ 3-0 loss to Fulham on a day when Davies was afforded only a few touches as the Cottagers dominated.

Sources close to Davies have indicated that the midfielder would relish the chance to join the Magpies next season, with European football only increasing his appetite to switch to Tyneside.
