Newcastle have made an improved offer for Brighton defender Dan Burn.
The Daily Mail says Newcastle have made an improved bid of £10million plus add-ons for Burn.
Eddie Howe is hoping to bring in two centre backs and to finalise the key signing of Lyon midfielder Bruno Guimarães before Monday's deadline with a left-back and a striker also on his list.
Newcastle targeted Burn last week and opened with an £8m offer which was rejected.
The 6ft 7in, 29-year-old Burn is left-sided and Howe believes he can add balance as well as grit to his defence as they strive to avoid relegation.
Burn, born in Blyth, Northumberland, grew up supporting Newcastle and is believed to be keen on a move to the North East and a return to the region where he played for Blyth Spartans and Darlington.
