Newcastle United are reportedly scouting Turkey international Okay Yokuslu.

According to a report from Turkish-Football, the Magpies sent scouts to watch the midfielder in Trabzonspor’s clash with Osmanlispor on Monday night.

Yokuslu has been linked with a move to the Premier League for some time now, with the likes of West Ham and West Brom having been linked. However, it seems Newcastle have a fresh interest in the player ahead of the summer.

The Magpies are now able to begin their preparations for next season, with the club having effectively secured their safety in the Premier League in recent times.

Newcastle could be keen to bolster their midfield options and Yokuslu is seemingly a player on their radar, with scouts keeping a close eye on the 24-year-old.

Yokuslu is predominantly a midfielder but has been utilised as a central defender in recent weeks by Trabzonspor. The Turkish international’s versatility could be of interest to potential suitors like Newcastle.
