The Daily Mirror have claimed that Newcastle United are interested in signing midfielder Jeff Hendrick this summer, with the report also claiming that the Irishman has left Burnley on a free transfer.

Hendrick, 28, is set to see his contract at Burnley expire on June 30 and clubs had until June 23 to agree extensions for out-of-contract players and loanees until the end of the season.

Burnley have announced that Joe Hart will leave the club at the end of his contract, but reports claim Phil Bardsley has agreed a one-year deal. Nothing has been said about Hendrick and winger Aaron Lennon.
