Newcastle are set to sign teenage defender Jordan Hackett after his release from Tottenham this summer.
The 18-year-old’s contract expired at Spurs on Thursday and he will not be signing a new deal.
The highly-rated left-back looks set to be snapped up by Eddie Howe’s men on a free transfer.
He had a successful trial at the Magpies prior to making his move permanent, as reported in The Sun.
Hackett featured 11 times for Spurs in the Under-18 Premier League but started less than half of the games last season.
