Man Utd keeper Amos among Newcastle emergency options

Newcastle United are weighing up several options as they seek an emergency goalkeeper signing.

The Daily Mail says Wigan Athletic's Ali Al-Habsi is one of the names at the forefront of Newcastle's thinking as they push the Premier League to allow them to sign a goalkeeper on emergency loan.

Manchester United's Ben Amos is another under consideration, as is Mark Schwarzer at Chelsea.

Toon boss Alan Pardew said: "It is something we might have to look at because there is no way that a 17-year-old that's our fourth-choice should be allowed to go in goal at this level."
