The 22-year-old joined the Magpies last season on loan in the January transfer window, and made a massive contribution for the club as they comfortably avoided relegation in the end.
He scored two goals in 13 appearances for the Tyneside club and made a strong impact for the side.
Newcastle have been trying to sign him, and it seems Rafael Benitez will finally get his wish, as the Magpies are close to signing him on loan again.
He will become Newcastle’s third signing of the summer, after the arrivals of Martin Dubvraka (on a permanent deal) and Ki Sung-Yeung.
