The Toon are hoping to land the player for a cheap deal as they look to build to next season

The 25-year-olds deal comes to an end at the end of this season but he has a €12m buyout clause in his contract which could be triggered by Dortmund at the climax of the season.

Dortmund have been scouting the player for a number of months now and are impressed with what they have seen and are prepared to make a move.

Newcastle are heavily interested and will be able to cope with wage demands of the player.

The club are prepared to pay his wage demands of €2.5m a season although a move on a free transfer seems highly unlikely.
