Newcastle 'to wrap up Sturridge loan'

A report claims that Newcastle United have beaten Inter Milan to the signing of Daniel Sturridge, who is to join on loan until the end of the season.

Newcastle United have reportedly emerged as the frontrunners to sign Daniel Sturridge on loan from Liverpool and are hopeful of finalising a deal in the next 24 hours.

The 28-year-old remains at Anfield with a little over two days of the transfer window left to run, despite supposedly being made available to take on a short-term contract.

Inter Milan appeared the most likely option for Sturridge, though his £150,000-a-week-wages - which Liverpool wanted paid in full by the Italian side - proved to be a sticking point.

According to The Mirror, Newcastle have pounced by making an approach for the English striker and a deal is expected to be finalised ahead of Wednesday night's transfer deadline.

Sturridge, restricted to nine top-flight appearances this term, has also been linked with Roma and West Ham United in recent weeks.
