With Daniel Iversen returning to Leicester City after the end of his most recent loan spell, the Championship club need to draft in a new shot-stopper during the summer window.
According to Football Insider, they’ve now made a move for Woodman.
The report claims that Preston have opened talks with Newcastle over a move for the 25-year-old, who has been given the green light to leave by the Premier League club.
North End are said to be working on a loan deal for next season with a view to a permanent move in the future.
Woodman is out of contract next summer meaning he could move to Deepdale on a free transfer then.
The Englishman has impressed in the Championship in the past – most notably across two seasons with Swansea City when he helped them reach the play-offs in both 2019/20 and 2020/21.

This could be a phenomenal signing for Preston, particularly if they can make it permanent next summer.
During his two seasons at Swansea, Woodman was one of the top keepers in the Championship and at 25, looks to have an exciting career ahead of him.
It would be a surprise if other Championship clubs weren’t in for the Newcastle player at some point but this looks to be a real coup.
Goalkeeper was a position that Ryan Lowe needed to address after Iversen returned to Leicester and Woodman would be a fantastic replacement.
