Former Coventry City striker Callum Wilson appears to be on the verge of a move to Newcastle United.
And that will provide a cash boost for the Sky Blues, who are believed to have a sell-on clause for the 28-year-old – agreed when they sold him to Bournemouth in 2014 for an undisclosed fee thought to be in the region of £3m.
Wilson now looks set to move north for considerably more than that, with Sky Sports reporting the Magpies have had a £20m bid accepted.

Aston Villa had also been battling for his signature, but it is said they withdrew their £21m offer because the forward’s “preference was a move to Tyneside”.
According to Sky: “Wilson is now free to discuss personal terms with Newcastle as he prepares to leave Bournemouth after six years with the Championship club.”
And Sky Blues fans have been revelling in the news their former front man looks to have turned down rivals Villa.
Born in Coventry, Wilson started his career with City and scored 22 goals in 49 league appearances.
He made his debut as a substitute in a League Cup tie against Hartlepool United in August 2009. His league debut came as a substitute against Queens Park Rangers in December 2010.
He has also been linked with Fulham, West Ham United and Tottenham Hotspur this summer, following the Cherries’ relegation to the second tier.
