Dan Burn

Newcastle are considering whether to make a second bid for the Brighton defender after having their initial offer rejected, talkSPORT understands.

The 29-year-old, a boyhood Toon fan, is in the last 18 months of his contract.

Brighton are not actively seeking to sell Burn this transfer window and an opening offer of £8million from the Magpies was swiftly rejected.

However, with their pursuit of Sevilla’s Diego Carlos dead in the water, Newcastle could yet return with a higher offer.
