Newcastle eyed up Legia's Michal Pazdan over the summer, but with Florian Lejeune back and Jamaal Lascelles in-form, they may not need to bid come January.
Newcastle are one of a host of clubs reportedly tracking the defender.
The ball had reared up at chest height and Michal Pazdan went for it, leaping in with his studs up and leg outstretched. The Poland centre-half did not get it. Instead, he left his mark on Jon Walters, the Republic of Ireland striker. It was November 2013. The legend of Kung-fu Pazdan was born.
