Porto manager Sergio Conceicao is interested in the soon-to-be vacant Newcastle United job, Sky Sports News understands.

Conceicao has been in charge of the Portuguese side for two seasons and led them to the title in 2018.

Newcastle are thought to have a long list of names and Conceicao is one that would fit the profile of manager they are looking for to replace Rafael Benitez.
