Newcastle have joined the hunt for Republic of Ireland midfielder Daryl Horgan.
He says he would have to consider an offer from the side currently top of the Championship if one materialised.
The 24-year-old wants to move to an English club, and with the Magpies heading back to the Premier League, he see a move to Geordieland as an obvious choice.
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.
"I'm a Dundalk player. I'm very happy at Dundalk but, as I said, if an offer does come in from somewhere, I'd have to consider it, especially from a massive club like Newcastle."
