Newcastle United are weighing a possible for former Man United goalkeeper and free agent David de Gea, MySportDab reports.
The Magpies are set to face a critical injury layoff for their number one goalkeeper Nick Pope.
Nick Pope picked up a shoulder injury against Manchester United in the Premier League on Saturday.
The English shotstopper had to be subbed off in the second half of the game with his backup Martin Dubravka coming to keep the sticks for the home side.
Sources close to Newcastle United medical department have revealed Nick Pope could be set for a lengthy injury layoff but the club is reportedly awaiting scan result to establish the facts of the injury.
A lengthy spell on the sidelines for Pope could be a big blow for Eddie Howe who considers the Three Lions goalie key to his Newcastle United squad.
Meanwhile, Daily Mail reports Eddie Howe and Newcastle United are exploring possible goalkeeper signings to stand in for Pope should he tarries on the sidelines.
The report adds former Man United goalkeeper and free agent David de Gea is top on the list of options available for the Magpies due to his experience in the Premier League and availability.
David de Gea is yet to take up a new challenge after his Manchester United contract expired in the summer.
He has been linked to big clubs in Europe, including a possible move to Saudi Arabia but a deal is yet to materialize.
A move to Newcastle United could see the Manchester United return to the Premier League after his Man United deadlock.
