Newcastle are working behind the scenes to add to their strikeforce in January, says head coach Steve McClaren.
The Premier League strugglers signed Serbia striker international Aleksandar Mitrovic during the summer but have been deprived of Papiss Cisse and Emmanuel Riviere for long periods during the first half of the campaign.
McClaren has been reticent when quizzed on the subject of the winter window, but asked if he could understand the desperation of fans to know the club’s plans, he replied:
“I understand fully where you’re coming from, believe you me. I think I’ve said enough to say that we do need more goals and that we’re working behind the scenes to address that.”
