MASON HOLGATE is wanted by Newcastle, Monaco and Nice on loan.
The Everton centre-back is out-of-favour at Goodison Park having made just ten appearances under Rafa Benitez this season.
And Holgate, who is under contract with the Toffees under 2025, is keen to play regular first-team football.
Burnley had also been linked with Holgate, who was the club's players' player of the year in 2020.
It is believed Everton will listen to offers for the 25-year-old – who can play in defence and midfield – in this window.
Holgate was an unused substitute in the 3-2 FA Cup third round win over Hull on Saturday.
Newcastle are chasing a centre-back and Holgate is on Eddie Howe's wish list in the market albeit in a temporary deal until the end of the season.
But Ligue 1 big guns Monaco and Nice are also in the chase for the ex-Barnsley star.
