Newcastle United are thought to be the latest club to join the hunt for prolific Portsmouth hit man Yakubu Aiyegbeni.
The pacey Nigerian, 22-years-old, fired his eighth goal of the season on Tuesday evening against Everton - in another performance that is likely to
attract potential suitors.
Yakubu has been linked with a host of clubs this term, with Chelsea and Liverpool both thought to be monitoring his progress at Fratton Park.
The South Coast outfit have previously expressed an interest in keeping their leading goalscorer but a big money bid is likely to test their resolve
in the next few weeks.
