Newcastle launching bid for Reading keeper McCarthy

Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew is chasing Reading goalkeeper Alex McCarthy.

The Mirror says several other Premier League clubs, including Arsenal, have scouted McCarthy and Newcastle - also linked with PSV Eindhoven keeper Jeroen Zoet - are keen to bring him in to challenge Tim Krul, who missed much of last season through injury.

Reading will be keen to keep hot property McCarthy, but face a major battle this summer.
