Sky Sports News sources understand that Newcastle have agreed a fee with Bolton for Kevin Nolan.

Magpies boss Joe Kinnear has spent the majority of the January transfer window frantically searching for fresh faces, and may have found one.

The St James' Park coach has seen his squad decimated by injuries this term, with Michael Owen and Joey Barton joining the ever-growing casualty list on Wednesday.

Nolan, though, would provide experienced cover in the middle of the park, helping to soften the Barton blow.

The 26-year-old has spent his entire career to date at Bolton, breaking into the Trotters' first team fold a decade ago.

He has earned international honours with England's U21s in the past, while he has often been mentioned in connection with a step up into the senior squad.

Newcastle and Bolton have yet to confirm that an agreement has been reached for the combative midfielder, but Sky Sports News sources claim a deal is imminent.
