The Sun reported yesterday that we are one of four teams pursuing Bournemouth midfielder Harry Arter.

The Bournemouth midfielder has been linked with an exit from Dean Court before the Premier League transfer window for permanent deals closes on Thursday.

But, according to BBC Newcastle, the Magpies are not in the hunt for Arter.

It has also been suggested that Rafael Benitez is eyeing taking the player to Newcastle.

Bournemouth have just made the £25 million signing of Colombian global midfielder Jefferson Lerma, and could have pushed Arter even further down the pecking order.

Ryanair has also confirmed that all affected customers have been notified. Ryanair has issued a statement on the strike, calling it "unnecessary".

Arter, who has three years remaining on his current contract, joined Bournemouth from non-league Woking in June 2010 and played a major role in their first two seasons in the top flight.

Arter signed for just £40, 000 and if the 28-year old is to leave the club, it is believed that Bournemouth will make a huge profit, with the asking price set at around £10 million.

Newcastle United are looking at trying to sign Bournemouth ace Harry Arter this summer, according to The Sun, but the Magpies face competition from Cardiff City, Middlesbrough and Stoke City for the Republic of Ireland global.

The Yorkshireman now has Joe Ralls, Aron Gunnarsson, Callum Paterson, Loic Damour and Stuart O'Keefe available to operate in the centre of midfield - but faces a race against time to bring in new additions.

Warnock is hoping to add midfield reinforcements to his squad after the Bluebirds missed out on re-signing Liverpool's Marko Grujic on loan.
