Newcastle United are chasing Celtic midfielder Scott Brown.

The Sunday Sun says Steve Stone has kept a close watch on the 25-year-old midfielder and his name has been thrown into the mix for United's summer recruitment drive.

Newcastle have a good relationship with Celtic after loaning goalkeeper Fraser Forster to the Glaswegian giants last season.

Neil Lennon has asked to be kept informed of the stopper's availability.
