Daniel Sturridge is close to joining Newcastle United on loan from Liverpool, according to reports.

The 28-year-old has barely featured under Jurgen Klopp this season and has started only five games in the Premier League so far.

Liverpool are open to allowing Sturridge to leave, although the striker is keen to remain in England.

Sturridge has attracted interest from Inter and Sevilla, but The Times report that Newcastle are closing in on a deal.
