Newcastle in advanced Bosman talks with Motherwell keeper Gillespie

Newcastle United are set to re-sign Mark Gillespie from Motherwell.

The Evening Chronicle says goalkeeper Gillespie has left Motherwell and is expected to join the Magpies as third choice shot-stopper next term.

He is understood to be a replacement for Rob Elliot.

Steve Bruce is believed to be looking at other free transfers for next season and it is the current regime who are still calling the shots on recruitment.

Gillespie, now 28, was on United's books as an Academy player.

He made 160 appearances for Carlisle earlier in his career before playing more than 50 games for Motherwell.
