Newcastle will move for £10m-rated Fulham star Tom Cairney once they seal promotion, according to the Daily Mirror.
Rafael Benitez’s side can confirm promotion back to the Premier League if they beat Preston tonight.
Rafa Benitez is a big fan of the playmaker and sent scouts once again to watch Tom Cairney star against Huddersfield on Saturday.
And Benitez knows that play-off chasing Fulham will struggle to hold onto the Scot if they miss out on a top-flight return themselves.
Cairney, 26, is keen to prove himself at the highest level after failing to get a look in with old club Hull.
Bournemouth and Burnley, regular visitors to Craven Cottage this season to make checks, are also keen on offering Cairney a Prem chance.
