Midfielder keen to open Newcastle talks after club reportedly make regular checks

By Will Butcher

Daryl Horgan has revealed that he would find it hard to turn down a club like Newcastle.

The Sun has claimed that the Championship’s league leaders are monitoring the 24-year-old winger after an impressive campaign in Ireland’s top division, as well as in Europe with Dundalk.

Speaking to the Ireland Independent, Horgan revealed that he would consider any offer put on the table by the Toon after describing them as a “massive club”.

“Look, it’s very easy to say you’re interested,” Horgan revealed. “It’s very different to put at offer on the table and at the minute, there are no offers on the table.

“I’m a Dundalk player, I’m very happy at Dundalk, but as I said, if an offer does come in from somewhere, I’d have to consider it, especially something like a massive club like Newcastle.”

Horgan has burst onto the scene after starring in Dundalk’s impressive Europa League run, that has included the uncapped Irishman scoring against Russian giants Zenit St. Petersburg.

Horgan’s form, which has seen him score 10 goals in 22 appearances from out wide, has seen him and defender Andy Boyle given a call-up to the Ireland squad to face Austria in Vienna.

His contract runs out in December, which has caught the attention of many of the Championship clubs.
