NEWCASTLE are reportedly plotting a double swoop for Josh King and David Brooks.
Steve Bruce is on a mission to bolster his attacking options during this summer’s transfer window.

According to The Telegraph, the two Bournemouth stars on Bruce’s wish list.
King, 28, has been tipped to leave the Cherries following their relegation from the top-flight.
The striker managed just six goals in 26 Premier League appearances this season.
But Bruce is keen to reunite with him after he signed him while in charge of Hull in 2012.
Newcastle will be up against the likes of Everton, Brighton and Burnley in the race for his signature.
Wales midfielder Brooks, who joined the Cherries in 2018, is another name on Newcastle’s radar.

He proved his potential with seven goals from midfield during his first season with Bournemouth.
But the 23-year-old was limited to just nine appearances during the 2019/20 campaign due to injuries.
The source claims Bruce will take a chance on him if Bournemouth are willing to sell him for the price they paid for him – which was £11.5million.
