A Real Madrid legend is reportedly close to sealing a deal with a Premier League club in January.
According to Portuguese media outlet A Bola, Newcastle United are closing in on FC Porto goalkeeper Iker Casillas.
The experienced shot-stopper is out of contract at the end of this season, and apparently wants a move to the Premier League.
The 36-year-old has lost his starting place at Porto to rookie Jose Sa in recent weeks, and this has marked fears that his time in Portugal may be up.
There are claims that the former Real star has fallen out with manager Sergio Conceicao after Casillas was apparently caught using his mobile phone during a training session
Newcastle boss Rafa Benitez is said to desperately want an experienced goalkeeper as he feels Rob Elliot and Karl Darlow are struggling with the pressures of the English top flight.
The Magpies are currently five points clear of the relegation zone, and are hoping they can bring in a few reinforcements to avoid slipping into the bottom three.
