The 29-year-old hasn't started a Premier League game since Manchester United's 2020 New Year's Day defeat against Arsenal and he is becoming more frustrated at Old Trafford.

Last season under Ole Solskjaer, Jesse Lingard was sent on loan to West Ham United for six months and he played 16 games netting 9 goals.

According to the report on Sportsbible and Evening News, Newcastle United chiefs are currently working on how to rescue Lingard this term with regular playing time guaranteed.

Why is Jesse Lingard not getting active playing time at Man United?

The return of Cristiano Ronaldo to Manchester United is affecting Lingard as the Portugal international is not expected to be sitting on the bench.

What is Manchester United and Newcastle position on the table?

Manchester United are currently occupying seventh position on the Premier League table with 35 points after 20 games while Newcastle United occupy 19th.

Newcastle United eye massive move for Balotelli, Everton star and Barcelona forward

Earlier, Sports Brief had reported how Mario Balotelli is now on the verge of making a sensational return to the Premier League as Newcastle United are interested in signing the former Manchester City star.

The Italian striker is not a new person to Premier League fans considering his controversies even though he won the topflight title at the Etihad Stadium.

Following the takeover by Saudi Arabia's Public Investment Fund last year October, Newcastle United chiefs are ready to invest heavily on the club so as to attract big players.

Newcastle United are also interested in signing of Everton defender Yerry Mina and Barcelona's Ousmane Dembele.

Mario Balotelli is currently plying his trade in Turkey for Adana Demirspor, who are managed by former Fulham star Vincenzo Montella.
