Newcastle boss Allardyce admits Faye talks continuing

Newcastle boss Sam Allardyce admits he is still trying to sign Bolton's Abdoulaye Faye.

The Toon boss is first hoping to clinch a £2m swoop for Faye within the next 24 hours.

Asked about Faye, Allardyce said: "I hope maybe it will be finalised within the next 24 hours, but I am not so sure.

"Because it has gone on so long, I really just don't know where it lies at the moment.

"We are pursuing two targets at this particular moment and outside of that, if they do not work, there are another couple that we can move to very quickly.

"Hopefully, at least one player will arrive by Friday, and hopefully two."
