The 24-year-old has been proving the Magpies wrong for allowing him to leave the club in 2018 and his 24 Championship goals this season have inspired the London club to occupy one of the automatic promotion places.
Those goals have brought about speculation as to where his future may lie, with Football Insider claiming that the Bees now value him at more than £30m.
Newcastle United are one of three Premier League clubs (alongside Leicester and West Ham) monitoring Ivan Toney, who is rated at £25m.
