Report: Newcastle to sell Haris Vuckic after returning from impressive Rangers loan

Newcastle are reportedly set to allow Haris Vuckic to leave the club this summer.

According to the Daily Mirror, Newcastle are ready to sell forward Haris Vuckic this summer, with Bolton Wanderers tracking him.

Vuckic, 22, has been with Newcastle since arriving from Domzale in 2009, but has mustered only 19 appearances for the Magpies, with most of his time spent out on loan.

Spells with Cardiff City, Rotherham United and Rangers have given Vuckic valuable experience, but with his contract set to expire in a year's time, his future on Tyneside looks bleak.

The Slovenian has just returned to St. James' Park after a productive spell with Rangers, where he scored nine goals in 22 appearances to become an instant fan favourite at Ibrox.

Now though, The Mirror report that Newcastle are set to sell Vuckic this summer, as Bolton Wanderers - managed by former Celtic boss Neil Lennon - are believed to be interested in signing the forward.

Could Rangers sign Vuckic permanently?

Rangers have made calculated moves in the transfer market so far this summer, luring Wes Foderingham, Danny Wilson and Rob Kiernan to Ibrox under new manager Mark Warburton.

However, supporters have yet to see a big move from new chairman Dave King - and Vuckic could be the the marquee signing fans are looking for.

Vuckic enjoyed a superb spell last season, and managing to lure him to Glasgow permanently would be a huge coup, though the interest from Bolton could make it difficult to secure a deal.

One thing is for sure though - if Newcastle are openly selling Vuckic this summer, Rangers will be looking into the possibility of a permanent deal.
