Newson, who only signed a new a new deal until the end of next season in January, now looks set to depart, having found playing time more limited this season, where he has netted seven goals in 17 appearances in all competitions, with six of those appearances coming from the substitutes bench.
The striker, who has found himself behind the likes of Michael Brothers and new arrival Ollie Mann in recent weeks, took to social media site Twitter to reveal his frustrations.
“Anybody need a striker? Willing to run for fun and score a couple of goals. Headed goals will be rare so don’t expect them! #footyproblems”
