Hendrick having medical at Newcastle ahead of free transfer

Newcastle United are closing in on a deal for out-of-contract former Burnley midfielder Jeff Hendrick.

The PA news agency understands the 28-year-old Republic of Ireland international is undergoing the first stages of a medical as the Magpies attempt to finalise a deal to take him to St James’ Park.

Hendrick formally left Turf Moor after four years when his deal expired on June 30 having failed to agree terms to extend his stay.



He joined the Clarets in a £10.5million switch from Derby in 2016 weeks after starring in Ireland’s Euro 2016 campaign in France, where they reached the last 16 after a famous victory over Italy.

Hendrick made 27 appearances for Burnley last season, but none after the return from lockdown as negotiations stalled.

His capture would represent a start to the summer recruitment process for Magpies head coach Steve Bruce, who has spent the last few months wondering if he would even be in a job when the new campaign kicks off amid frenzied, and as yet fruitless, speculation over the club’s ownership.

Bruce is understood to have been handed a reduced summer transfer kitty of between £25million and £30m – the club smashed their transfer record with a £40m move for striker Joelinton 12 months ago – and whatever else he can generate in sales.

Newcastle are thought to be concentrating largely on English-based targets and Hendrick’s name appears on a list which is also thought to include the likes of Manchester United defender Chris Smalling, who spent last season on loan at Roma, Brentford striker Ollie Watkins and Bournemouth counterpart Callum Wilson among others.

Ramsdale undergoes medical ahead of £18.5m Sheff Utd move

Bournemouth goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale is undergoing a medical at former club Sheffield United ahead of an £18.5million move, the PA news agency understands.

England Under-21 international Ramsdale has also been linked with Aston Villa, but the Blades are the only club to have .

If the deal is completed, 22-year-old Ramsdale will return to Bramall Lane, where he began his career.



He moved from United to the Vitality Stadium in 2017 for £800,000 and went on to play 37 times in the Premier League for Bournemouth, having made his debut against Chris Wilder’s side last August.

Blades boss Wilder is in the market for a new keeper after loanee Dean Henderson returned to parent club Manchester United.

Bournemouth rejected an initial bid of around £12m from the South Yorkshire club for Ramsdale.

The Cherries originally hoped to hold on to the player, despite their five-year top-flight stay coming to an end.

But Stoke-born Ramsdale, voted Bournemouth supporters’ player of the year for the 2019-20 campaign, is understood to be keen on the move to continue his career in the Premier League.

The £18.5m fee includes the 15 per cent sell-on clause United inserted into the initial deal between the two clubs.

Ramsdale is set to become the second player sold by the Cherries since relegation, following Nathan Ake’s £40m switch to Manchester City.
