The Scottish Sun is reporting that Newcastle are after Josh Windass, the 22 year-old Rangers midfielder and the report is the Tyneside club want him in January.
This is the first time we have ever been linked with Windass.
Windass only joined Rangers from Accrington Stanley in July on a four year contract along with fellow Accrington team-mate Matt Crooks.
Josh Windass in action for Rangers
The fee for each player is said to have been be £60K.
Josh had a good season last term with Accrington Stanley scoring 17 goals in 35 appearances.
He has played 12 times for Rangers this season with one goal and he is highly rated, but hasn’t been particularly impressive for the Scottish club this season.
He is currently out injured with a hamstring problem.
Before joining Rangers he had played three seasons at Accrington Stanley and in that time appeared 86 times with 23 goals and 13 assists.
His transfer fee would hardly be high and maybe he has some potential that Rafa sees in the player who was born in Kingston upon Hull.
Before he joined Rangers in July he had been well scouted in England, but it was Rangers who picked him up for peanuts.
He started his career at Huddersfield Town when he joined them as an 8 year-old in 2002 and he moved to Harrogate Railway Athletic in 2012 where he stayed one year before moving to Accrington Stanley.
It seems strange that Newcastle would be interested in this player but Rafa Benitez must see the potential in the 22 year-old.
Derby County are also said to be interested in the player who was well scouted by a number of Championship clubs last season.
