Newcastle United are keeping tabs on Andrea Weimann's new contract talks with Aston Villa.

The People says Weimann's current deal expires in 2014 and Villa are yet to negotiate an ­extension, despite manager Paul Lambert's desire to keep him.

Norwich have already made an enquiry, while ­Liverpool and Borussia Dortmund are monitoring the situation.

And Newcastle have now joined the list of clubs ready to pounce if Villa fail to strike an agreement.
