Steve McClaren is working hard on transfer deadline day – by putting his players through a DOUBLE session.

The club is not expected to sign anyone before today’s 6pm deadline, though there could be one or more departures.

And head coach McClaren – whose side are yet to win a Premier League game this season – is focused on his work on the training field.

Papiss Demba Cisse, Mike Williamson and Yoan Gouffran have all been linked with moves away from St James’s Park.

But the trio were all being put through their paces at the club’s Benton training ground by McClaren and his staff.
