The 26-year-old faces the prospect of being third-choice goalkeeper at St. James’ Park next season as Karl Darlow is set to return to the club after a season-long loan spell at Nottingham Forest.

The Chronicle understands the former Charlton Athletic goalkeeper is keen on a return to the capital despite having a year left on his contract in the north east.

Elliot joined Newcastle from Charlton in August 2011 and has made just 22 appearances in four years.

He made five appearances this season but has suffered from injury problems.

Newcastle are unlikely to stand in his way should Elliot want to leave as Freddie Woodman and Paul Woolston, both England youth internationals, have impressed in the reserves and youth ranks this campaign.

The goalkeeper began his career with non-league Erith Town before moving to Charlton aged 17.

He made 96 appearances in seven years at The Valley and enjoyed loan spells at Bishop’s Stortford, Notts County and two at Accrington Stanley.
