Newcastle close in on Riviere

Newcastle boss Alan Pardew is poised to make a breakthrough in his search for a new strikeforce, with the club closing in on Monaco's Emmanuel Riviere.

Press Association Sport understands the two clubs have reached an agreement over the £4.7million-rated 24-year-old, who could head for Tyneside within the next 24 hours to clinch a move.

Riviere would become Pardew's fifth summer signing, with Holland defender Daryl Janmaat yet to formally complete his switch to Tyneside from Feyenoord.
