Newcastle to make move for Heerenveen striker

Newcastle are reportedly set to make a move for Heerenveen striker Alfred Finnbogason in the January transfer window.

The 24-year-old Iceland international scored 24 goals in the Dutch top flight last season.

The Journal reports that Finnbogason was offered to the Magpies during the summer window for a fee of around £5million.

Newcastle decided to look at other targets during the summer.
