WOLVES star Conor Coady is being tracked by Newcastle and local rivals West Bromwich Albion, SunSport understands.
The 24-year-old has been converted by Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Sancho from a defensive midfielder to part of a three-man back line.
He has helped take the West Midlands outfit to the top of the Championship.
The former Liverpool academy product recently penned a new long-term deal at Molineux and is valued at £7million.
Baggies boss Tony Pulis will have his work cut out trying to persuade their neighbours to do business in January with Wolves pushing for promotion.
Toon boss Rafa Benitez has also been alerted to the defender’s stand out performances this term as the Spaniard looks to bolster his squad in January.
Santo is a big fan of Coady.
But the Blades advances were spurned by the Portuguese coach.
And he handed Coady the captain’s armband in the summer to lead the charge back to the Premier League.
