The People says he is ready to try his luck in China at the end of the season when his loan at West Brom is up.
At the moment there is no permanent deal in place for either him or Salomon Rondon, who moved the other way in the unique swap deal, to complete their moves at the end of the season.
The Newcastle striker, who moved to The Hawthorns in a loan swap for Rondon, could pocket around £200,000-a-week net. Chinese Super League clubs are interested in the 27-year-old who has hit three goals in five games.
United's former number nine made a superb start to life at West Brom, scoring three times and laying on three goals in his five matches so far.
