NEWCASTLE United are reportedly considering a summer move for Cherries duo Lloyd Kelly and Philip Billing.

The Daily Mail claims Magpies boss Eddie Howe is keen to reunite with two of his former players.

Kelly has been linked with a host of clubs, as his Cherries contract winds down. He is expected to leave for free this summer, when his current deal ends.

Tottenham Hotspur made a £20million bid for him in September, which was rejected, while the likes of AC Milan, Liverpool and Monaco have all been credited with interest in Kelly.

The 25-year-old has had injury issues this season, restricting him to 15 appearances across all competitions, either at centre-back or left-back.

Billing meanwhile signed a new long-term deal at Cherries as recently as August of last year, tying him to the club until 2027.

The Denmark international, who joined from Huddersfield Town in 2019, has been a key figure at Cherries in the past few seasons.

He is currently serving a three-match ban, having been sent off against Nottingham Forest earlier this month.

However, prior to that, Billing had already fallen out of the starting line-up, making the XI just once in the Premier League since early November.

The Mail claim the 26-year-old could be available to Newcastle for £15million, the same price Cherries paid to buy him.
