The Daily Star understands that Newcastle United could be set to make a move for Southampton striker Jay Rodriguez.

Representatives of the striker have been in talks with the North East club, who secured their return to the top flight by winning the Championship earlier this month.

The one-time England international has struggled to hold down a first team place since Claude Puel arrived at the south coast club last summer, racking up just nine league starts though he has been in and out of the treatment room while he also missed the whole of the 2014/15 campaign through injury.

He scored the opener as the Saints beat relegated Middlesbrough on Saturday to take his total goals tally for the club to thirty-four.

Southampton host Manchester United in their penultimate game of the season on Wednesday evening and Rodriguez can be backed at a price of 6/1 to open the scoring.
