Newcastle keeping tabs on Groningen whizkid Doan

Newcastle United have scouted Groningen winger Ritsu Doan.

The Chronicle claim Toon are weighing up an offer for the Japan international in January.

The 20-year-old was linked with Manchester City last summer.

However, he is expected to favour a move to St. James' Park due to the number of first-team opportunities afforded by Rafa Benitez.

The Spaniard is desperate for reinforcements and with a price-tag of just £1.7million, Doan presents a realistic option for Magpies transfers chief Lee Charnley.
