Swansea star Andre Ayew has asked club bosses to OK his move to St James' Park.
The Swansea midfielder is said to have his heart set on joining Rafael Benitez at Newcastle.
Although the move is expected to go through, negotiations are believed to have stalled on Swansea's asking price for the player.
Newcastle's initial bid of €17 million was considered to be too low, according to club insiders.
