Antonio Valencia is reported to have been told he can seal a January transfer switch away from Manchester United, with Premier League duo Newcastle and Fulham interested in his services. Valencia, 33, has fallen down the pecking order at Old Trafford and is set to become a free agent in the summer once his current contract expires.
The former winger turned full-back has just five Premier League appearances to his name this season, and will look to move before the end of the mid-season window if the opportunity arises.Newcastle United are hopeful of signing the player if United will pay up the remainder of his contract early, as report the Sun.
A more cost-effective option for United however may be a mid-season loan, with some clubs keen to take the player and his wages of around £100,000 for the rest of the term.This would enable United to get the veteran star off the wage bill early, before his permanent departure at the end of the campaign.
Valencia featured often under former manager Jose Mourinho, before a disagreement between the pair saw his playing time become severely limited. Valencia joined the club in 2009 from Wigan and became an instant fan favourite at Old Trafford, with his tireless work rate and physical approach to the game. The two-time Premier League winner has racked up 338 games for the Red Devils, with 25 goals to his name.

The Spanish giants are eyeing Hazard as a replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo, who after nine years, left the Santiago Bernabeu for Juventus in an £88million deal last summer.
According to Belgian outlet, HLN, Chelsea wants at least £98.5million for Hazard after rejecting Real Madrid’s opening offer for the 28-year-old.
Hazard is a huge admirer of Zidane as a coach and named the French legend as his idol growing up.
