Alan Pardew will continue his summer spending spree this week by attempting to sign three more players.
A goalkeeper, left back and striker are all high on Pardew's wish list as he looks to strengthen his squad further despite having made five signings already this summer.
With Jimmy Walker possibly out of action for several months and Chris Powell having returned to Charlton, Pardew is looking to bring in (cheap) players to cover those positions. Clive Clarke of Stoke has already been cited, whilst former Hammer Shaka Hislop is also thought to be in contention.
But Pardew's priority remains a top class striker; already mentioned in the past few days have been Liverpool's Milan Baros and Dutch striker Dirk Kujit, although his interest in Porto's Benni McCarthy appears to have cooled.
