Newcastle make striker signing a priority

Newcastle are following a series of strikers as they attempt to rebuild their forward line. Demba Ba's departure for Chelsea has left Alan Pardew's men short of a quality hitman.

The recruitment of at least one proven frontman is the main priority, and Joe Kinnear's subsequent and controversial arrival as director of football has done little to shift that focus.

Kinnear, who had already spoken to boss Alan Pardew, met chief scout Graham Carr last week and it is understood they have a series of names in their sights.
