Although reports from Teeside claim Middlesbrough are leading the race for Gravesen, who is set to leave Spain within the month, the 30-year-old Danish international prefers a move to Tyneside.

He has already rejected a switch to Celtic and Everton, but Glenn Roeder has already added to his growing band of midfield players by signing Damien Duff.

Roeder is desperate to sign a striker, and there is only so much money he can splash around until he sells the likes of Boumsong and Luque.
