Newcastle United remain in talks with Real Valladolid over the signing of right-back Ivan Fresneda.

Magpies officials have watched the 18-year-old several times, including against his former team Real Madrid on Friday.

Spaniard Fresneda is not the only right-back Newcastle are looking at but fits the profile of player they want to sign.

Fresnada - who has made seven appearances for Valladolid and is under contract until 2025 - is also being monitored by European giants Juventus and Borussia Dortmund.

It is thought the player is flattered by the interest and is open to a move to St James' Park.

Newcastle see their recruitment in the right-back position to be someone who can learn from Kieran Trippier and eventually become a key player in the team. Fresneda's contract is up in 2025.
