Newcastle close to securing deal for Burnley midfielder Jeff Hendrick

Newcastle United are close to securing a deal for Burnley midfielder Jeff Hendrick.

The 28-year-old left Burnley earlier this summer and was the subject of interest from West Ham too but has been discussing terms on a four year deal with Newcastle, says the Daily Mail.

Manager Steve Bruce is keen to add the Republic of Ireland international due to his Premier League experience and versatility.

Hendrick signed for Burnley from Derby in 2016 and has scored ten goals in 139 appearances.

The 28-year-old had started 22 matches for Burnley this term and Sean Dyche wanted to keep the versatile operator in his ranks but contract talks ultimately went nowhere, with the player content to wait and see what other doors might open.
