Wigan Athletic forward Marlon King could be heading to Championship club Newcastle United for the rest of the season on loan according to reports in the media.

King quite obviously doesn`t feature in the plans of Latics boss Roberto Martinez and a season in the Newcastle attack rather than the Wigan reserves must be more appealing to him even though during the summer he claimed he wouldn`t go on loan again after spending the whole of last season at first Hull City and then Middlesbrough.

Newcastle have switched their attention to King following an injury to young Everton striker James Vaughan who they had lined up last week and representatives of the club have been in touch with the Latics to get the ball rolling.

Championship clubs are allowed to make loan signings outside the transfer window so that isn`t a problem it could just be down to whether Marlon fancies the year up in Newcastle or kicking his heals around Christopher Park.

From a Latics point of view this will leave the club with just two recognised first team strikers, Hugo Rodallega and Jason Scotland, maybe we are looking at some unattached players to bring one in to bolster the options upfront, I hope so.
