As for Newcastle, they want extra firepower up front to avoid relegation from the top flight. 

Eddie Howe is currently in Saudi Arabia, but insists the club are working hard towards new transfers.

"A lot of hard work is being done back in England," he said via The Shields Gazette.

"I've got no news to tell everybody at the moment but I'm keeping regularly updated but as we know it's a difficult window and we just hope we can get a couple more additions to boost the squad."
