Newcastle had been linked with a move for Wolves striker Benik Afobe but McClaren said there was nothing in those rumours and added he is happy with his strikers.

Asked whether he needed to add to that department, he replied: “No, not really.

“I am happy with that.

“Papiss will always score goals.

“Mitrovic has to get used to the Premier League – he is doing that.

“I thought he was excellent at Old Trafford, grew into the game; Ayoze played up front in midweek on his own.

“We have got Riviere, who is coming back from injury, so we have enough in that position.”
