A Newcastle United defender released by the club in 2012 is reported to be on his way back to the Premier League.

Media in Hungary and Lancashire claim that Burnley have made an offer of just over £1m for Tamas Kadar.

The 26 year old currently plays for Lech Poznan who finished sixth in the Polish league this past season, Kadar a left-back who can also play at centre-half.

Brought in as a 17 year old, Tamas Kadar signed on at Newcastle on the same day that Kevin Keegan (second spell) was unveiled as manager in January 2008.

In his three and a half years at St James Park, the young defender only managed 13 first team appearances and was also loaned out to Huddersfield during that time, with former Newcastle coach and player Lee Clark manager at the time for the Terriers.

On his release in 2012 Tamas Kadar moved to Dutch club Roda and then back to Hungary with Diosgyor, before 18 months ago signing for his current club in Poland.

Kadar has been a first choice selection for his country for some time and with 30 caps already, he is expected to start for Hungary at left-back in the Euros as they face Portugal, Austria and Iceland in the group stages.

Only days after Tamas Kadar agreed his move to Newcastle in January 2008, a certain Dennis Wise arrived at St James Park to the bemusement/anger of Newcastle fans.

The Hungarian youngster was later said to be a signing recommended by Wise ahead of his own arrival. Newcastle going on to buy in many younger players as Dennis Wise attempted to replicate what the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United were doing, cherry picking players in their teens from other clubs in the hope they would progress to the first team.

The policy ended up about as successful as Dennis Wise’s involvement/control of more senior signings, with none of the younger players making it at Newcastle, the name most recognisable of the young players Wise brought in – a certain Nile Ranger
