Newcastle United boss Chris Hughton has confirmed his interest in two Premiership strikers.

Kamara could be on his way to Newcastle United on loan from Fulham after Hughton extolled the striker's virtues.

Championship clubs are now able to make loan signings and Newcastle's caretaker manager said: "Diomansy Kamara is a very good player who scored a lot of goals in this division for West Brom. I fully expect we'll shortly be bringing in another couple of players."

Another new arrival could be Aston Villa's Marlon Harewood.

"Marlon was another one we've spoken about," said Hughton, whose unbeaten side travel to Blackpool for a midweek Championship match.
