Newcastle interested in Boenisch - report

The Magpies are apparently looking into the possibility of bringing the former Werder Bremen defender to the club, having monitored his performances for Poland at Euro 2012

Newcastle United are interested in signing free agent Sebastian Boenisch, according to German newspaper Bild.

The 25-year-old full-back, who was released by Werder Bremen at the end of last season, was expected to sign for Stuttgart, who confirmed their interest earlier in June.

However, a late approach from the Magpies could well see the Polish defender plying his trade in the Premier League next season.

Alan Pardew's side enjoyed a successful 2011-12 campaign after signing less heralded players from various European leagues, something they will look to continue with the potential acquisition of Boenisch.

The left-back has impressed this summer with three assured performances for Poland at Euro 2012.
