Newcastle manager Sam Allardyce is closing in on the signatures of both Manchester United striker Alan Smith and Brazilian defender Cacapa.

The Magpies have agreed a £6million fee for Smith, who is deemed surplus to requirements at Old Trafford, while Lyon captain Cacapa is scheduled to have a medical on Thursday.

"I am hoping that the Alan Smith deal will go through on Thursday," Allardyce said. "He has other clubs to consider and I am hoping we are top of his list."
