Andy Carroll has arrived at St James' Park ahead of a possible move back to Newcastle.
Sky Sports News understands the striker has been receptive to the idea of a return to his former club and would be willing to take a pay cut to fit into the wage structure.
Newcastle could sign him after the window closes at 5pm due to the fact the forward is a free agent.
Gateshead-born Carroll came through the ranks at Newcastle and made his debut for the club as a 17-year-old.
He scored 33 goals in 90 appearances before a British-record breaking £35m move to Liverpool in the 2011 January Transfer Window.
Carroll joined West Ham on a permanent deal in 2013 after spending the previous season on loan with the Hammers.
But the 30-year-old left West Ham as a free agent earlier this summer after an injury-plagued spell in east London where he managed just 84 Premier League starts and scored 33 goals in seven-and-a-half years.
