Newcastle United are considering the prospect of re-signing former winger Andros Townsend from Crystal Palace this month. The England international left the Magpies for Selhurst Park in the summer.

Magpies boss Rafa Benitez is said to be keen on bringing back the 25-year-old as he seeks to clinch automatic promotion to the top flight, The Mail claims.

The Tynesiders are currently leading the standings in the Championship, but the manager is still wary of the charge from the likes of Brighton, Reading and Leeds United.

Townsend has failed to play the entire 90 minutes under Sam Allardyce in recent weeks, and he could be tempted to accept a return to St.James Park in January.

Sam Clucas is the other on the Magpies' radar, but Hull City are reluctant to their player midway through their Premier League campaign.
