Newcastle lining up Hoilett bid

ESPNsoccernet understands Newcastle United could be set to lodge a bid for Blackburn Rovers winger Junior Hoilett.

• Kean: Junior Hoilett stays
• Kean might not get Samba cash

Hoilett, 21, has impressed for Blackburn this season, despite the club's poor form that sees them bottom of the Premier League table.

It has been reported that interest in the Canada international is mounting with Blackburn alleged to be open to a deal, aware they could lose the forward for nothing in the summer when his contract expires.

The likes of Tottenham have been mentioned as potential suitors, and now Newcastle appear to have joined the race to acquire his signature.

A source told ESPNsoccernet: "Newcastle might be the club who make a move for Hoilett, that is the buzz around Blackburn at the moment."

Such is Blackburn's financial plight that the club need to sell before attempting to add to their squad, and an asking price of £7 million for Hoilett could pave the way for additions.

Chris Samba could be another player set for the exit door, with Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp making no secret of his interest in the defender.

"I've tried to sign [Gary] Cahill so many times. He is a good player and he is not expensive," the Tottenham boss is quoted as saying in the Daily Mail.

"Samba is a good player, too. If Tottenham wanted him we would have a big chance, with no disrespect to QPR."
