​Newcastle United are hoping to continue their January rebuild with the signings of West Brom striker Saido Berahino and Tottenham winger Andros Townsend, according to the Mirror.


The Magpies, who dropped back into the Premier League's bottom three after Swansea's win against Watford on Monday, have already spent a reported £17m on midfielders Jonjo Shelvey and Henri Saivet this month.


But head coach Steve McClaren is now focused on adding to his attack, the report claims, and is confident of adding Townsend, who has been out of favour at White Hart Lane since his bust-up with fitness coach Nathan Gardiner in November.

It is understood that Tottenham are holding out for £14m for the England winger, and Newcastle could take their winter spending to around the £50m mark with a bid for Berahino, although Spurs, Stoke and Chelsea are also said to be interested.


The Magpies' original target was thought to be Alexandre Lacazette, but the Lyon striker recently revealed his desire to stay put this month, with a move to a Champions League club next season reportedly on his horizon.


Berahino, who scored 20 goals last term, has been a peripheral figure for the Baggies this time around amid a string of alleged fall-outs with key club staff, including chairman Jeremy Peace and manager Tony Pulis.


And the Black Country club are likely to favour a January sale, after the 22-year-old entered the final 18 months of his contract.
