The Magpies were reportedly keen to sign him in the summer, and the report claims that the 30-year-old could be an option for them in January.
The Dutchman could be the exact type of player Newcastle need at the moment.
The Magpies are looking to sign a left-back in the upcoming transfer window due to the injury suffered by Paul Dummett while playing for Wales.
Newcastle are looking to reignite their interest in Paris St-Germain’s Stanley N’Soki, but Pieters remains an option for them. However, Rafael Benitez could struggle to convince his board to make a move for the experienced left-back.
Pieters joined Stoke City in the summer of 2013 from PSV Eindhoven for a transfer fee reported by BBC Sport to be worth £3 million.
He is a key player for Stoke City, but the lure of playing in the Premier League could be equally tempting for him. He would be a brilliant signing for the Magpies.
