Newcastle United have returned with a second loan offer for Manchester United’s Jesse Lingard.

Sources say the situation is complicated by United wanting to sell the player this month, given his contract expires in the summer.

However, while Lingard is keen on a move to St James’ Park, he would prefer a loan deal for the time being.

Newcastle would like to negotiate a permanent transfer, but it could be they have to pay a sizeable loan fee to satisfy both United and the England forward, who wants to keep his options open.

Either way, the Magpies are said to be ‘optimistic’ about their chances of landing the 29-year-old, after seeing an initial loan offer rejected on Wednesday.

Lingard has not started in the Premier League this season and is desperate for first-team football in a World Cup year.

Meanwhile, Newcastle remain hopeful of signing Sevilla centre-back Diego Carlos. 

Reports in Spain had suggested the deal was off, but sources claim negotiations are still ongoing with a fee in the region of £30million.
