Republic of Ireland midfielder Daryl Horgan says he would have to consider an offer from Newcastle if one materialised.

The 24-year-old - one of two Dundalk players called up to the national side by Martin O'Neill this week - has suggested he is aware of the Sky Bet Championship leaders' interest.

Horgan's reputation in Ireland has been growing this season after some impressive displays, and he is reportedly of interest to a number of English second-tier clubs.

Speaking ahead of what could be his senior international debut against Austria in the World Cup Group D Qualifier on Saturday, Horgan said: "I don't know, really (what's going on).

"To be honest with you, I try to stay out of it as much as I possibly can.

"It's very easy to say you're interested. It's very different to put an offer on the table and, at the minute, there are no offers on the table.
