The Evening Chronicle says King is heading for the exit door at Goodison Park after failing to impress on Merseyside with no goals in 11 substitute appearances in the Premier League.
King shares the same German-based agency as current United striker Joelinton, ROGON GmbH & Co.KG, with head of recruitment Steve Nickson having good ties with the player's representatives.
Having worked with ROGON before on the £40million Joelinton deal, the chance to get King on a free transfer will now present itself to Newcastle and potentially continue the Bournemouth links on Tyneside with Matt Ritchie, Callum Wilson and Ryan Fraser already onboard.
