The 24-year-old travelled to Tyneside on Sunday to hold talks and undergo a medical.

Ireland is thought to have agreed terms with Newcastle with the move set to go through on Monday upon the completion of his medical.

The talented midfielder has endured a difficult time at Aston Villa following his switch from Manchester City in the summer.

Ireland has made just 13 appearances for Villa this season and Gerard Houllier is willing to let him move on having signed Jean Makoun from Lyon earlier this month and also lined up a loan deal for USA midfielder Michael Bradley.

Ireland has been keen on a move away in search of regular first-team football and he hopes he can get his career back on track at St James' Park.

Newcastle boss Alan Pardew has been keen to bolster his squad and Ireland is expected to become the club's second signing of this transfer window after Hatem Ben Arfa made his loan switch permanent.
