Saido Berahino will NOT be joining Newcastle United in this month's transfer window.

That's the news from the Midlands today ahead of Monday night's transfer deadline.

The West Bromwich Albion striker had been the relegation-threatened club's No 1 target this month.

But the Gazette reported this week that hopes of a deal were fading, and Newcastle, it seems, will now have to look elsewhere for a goalscorer.

We today reported that United were also looking to sign a defender.

And the club has been linked with Argentina and England internationals.

Meanwhile, we also have an interview with new signing Andros Towsnend, who has revealed why he was so keen to sign for Newcastle.

The £12million winger has also talked about his controversial final few months at Tottenham Hotspur.
