Brighton's Anthony Knockaert
Newcastle have been linked with a move for Knockaert in the summer transfer window.
According to a report in The Chronicle earlier this week, the Magpies could return with a bid for the winger before the end of the summer transfer window.
Brighton signed Knockaert from Belgian club Standard Liege in the January transfer window.
The former Leicester winger was an instant hit for the Seagulls and helped them finish in the Championship play-offs last season.
The 24-year-old scored five goals and created 29 chances in 20 Championship appearances for Brighton during the 2015-16 campaign.

Knockaert would have been a great signing for NUFC. He cares about Brighton and I admire his commitment towards them. Onto the next target.— Daniel Abela (@dan2882) August 12, 2016
#NUFC should look at Knockaert again. £12m wouldn't be unseasonal for a player with quality— teasdaleee. (@Teasdalee94) August 12, 2016
#NUFC need to seriously revisit purchasing Brighton' Knockaert! Quality player, even if he does pronounce the K at the beginning of his name— Top Bonarna (@AlBonar10) August 12, 2016
If #NUFC get Knockaert then I'm confident we'll smash the league— RAFA THE GAFFA (@ElliotNufc) August 12, 2016
Knockaert looks immense here. Real shame we couldn't get that one done, there's other wingers out there that Rafa will pursue. #NUFC— NUFC 360 (@NUFC360) August 12, 2016
