Newcastle scouts watching two Championship players today

Newcastle United scouts will be at Turf Moor for Burnley's home match against Charlton Athletic - but who are they watching?

Here Is The City understands that the Magpies are keeping tabs on Burnley's young English duo Kieran Trippier and Danny Ings.

Full-back Trippier, expected to make his 100th league appearance for the Turf Moor club, is a former Manchester City reserve captain and England U21 international.

The 23-year-old was linked with the Toon last year, before the Magpies decided to pursue Frenchman Mathieu Debuchy. 

He is contracted to the Clarets until the summer of 2015.

Interest in Trippier's team-mate, frontman Ings continues to grow - after his impressive start to the season for the Lancashire club.

The 21-year-old has netted nine times in eleven games this season to make up for the loss of Burnley's top striker Charlie Austin to QPR in the summer.

Toon scouts have already watched the 21-year-old three times this year - and are expected monitor his latest outing against Charlton this afternoon.

A whole host of Premier League clubs, including Sunderland, Crystal Palace and Aston Villa have also been credited with an interest in Ings, and it is believed Burnley value him around the £7 million mark.
