Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew is keen on Crystal Palace fullback Nathaniel Clyne.

The Daily Star Sunday says Toon boss Pardew is targeting Crystal Palace right-back Clyne as a possible replacement for Danny Simpson.

Ex-Manchester United defender Simpson, 25, has refused to sign a new contract - and Pardew has his sights set on Clyne, 20.

Manchester United are also interested in the England Under-21s international, who is rated by the Eagles at around £5million.
