Newcastle United winger Yasin Ben El-Mhanni
Newcastle acquired El-Mhanni from non-league football last summer, but the 21-year-old is out of contract at the end of the campaign.
Newcastle are said to want to send him on loan this term, although their plan could be scuppered if he fails to extend his deal.

And it is claimed the Magpies 'could be willing to do business on a permanent deal' should the right offer come in.
According to The Sun, Napoli, Leicester and Brighton are all 'lurking', despite El-Mhanni having played only 138 minutes of professional football.
But Leicester, of all clubs, are unlikely to be deterred by the player's lack of experience, given Jamie Vardy's rise from non-league football to the England national team in the space of three years.
Interestingly, El-Mhanni, who was once Neymar's body double, was often compared to Foxes winger Riyad Mahrez before his move to Newcastle.

Brighton wide man Solly March also began his career outside the Football League, with local side Lewes.
Would Newcastle rue El-Mhanni's exit?
