Newcastle chief Wise determined to land Vokes

Newcastle United chief Dennis Wise is eager to snap up Bournemouth prospect Sam Vokes.

The Evening Chronicle says Wise is keen on Bournemouth's young Welsh Under-21 striker and would have already done a deal had not the south coast club gone into administration.

Now Wolves boss Mick McCarthy is hoping to step in and snatch Vokes from under the noses of United.
