Newcastle were linked with Wolves striker Benik Afobe in the summer but at one point Steve McClaren said Newcastle were not after the England U21 striker.

Newcastle will be in the market for a couple fo strikers soon, with French striker Emmanuel Riviere unlikely to make the grade on Tyneside and veteran Papiss Cisse probably being allowed to move either in January or next summer.
