Steve Bruce hopes for one or two deadline day arrivals at Newcastle United.
The Magpies are keen on Leicester’s Hamza Choudhury but he’s not the only target for Bruce as he looks do some late business.

Asked whether there will be any incomings by talkSPORT‘s James Savundra, Bruce replied: “I will only bring players in if I think they can improve us, and there is the difficult part.
“Yes, I can go and bring four or five in if I wanted to today, but will they really improve us? It is really, really difficult.
“If something can improve us, and we hope we can do maybe one or two, then we will try.”
Bruce was quizzed further on his interest on Choudhury in his press conference ahead of Tuesday’s visit of Crystal Palace but said the midfielder is not the only player on his shopping list.
“I haven’t said that it’s just necessarily Hamza Choudhury,” he said. “You keep saying that. We’ve got one or two things bubbling along.
“We’ll see what develops later on today.”
Bruce, meanwhile, confirmed United States international defender DeAndre Yedlin is to join Turkish giants Galatasaray.
Matt Ritchie is also in talks over a return to Bournemouth, although there is still much work for that deal to be done.

Bruce said of Yedlin: “Quite simply we’ve had three right-backs at the club now and I think DeAndre is suited to playing as a wing-back.
“It’s been no secret that we’ve tried to change to a back four for a little bit of a while now, so to have three right-backs…
“I’d like to wish DeAndre the very best of luck in Turkey. He’s certainly playing for a huge club in Galatasaray, so I wish him the best of luck.
“He’s a great pro and a great lad, and sometimes you have to make decisions to let one out.”
On Ritchie going back to Bournemouth, Bruce added: “That’s up in the air. Matt’s been a very, very good servant to the club here and very, very well thought of, so we’ll see, we’ll see again later on in the day with that one.
“Matt’s found himself a bit frustrated with not playing and not being a regular in the team, and I understand that totally. But he has to understand that if it doesn’t happen, then he gets his head down and works his way to the end of the season.”
Bruce, meanwhile, was delighted to see Newcastle beat Everton 2-0 last weekend following a run of five straight defeats in the Premier League.
They now have two successive home games, against Palace and Southampton, with Bruce challenging his players to build on their performance at the weekend.
“It was slightly easier on Saturday to have a glass of wine or two but it was straight back to work on Sunday because we have another game coming thick and fast,” he said.
“We have had a difficult run so it was a welcome result for us.
“I’ve seen an improvement in us in the second half against Villa, I’ve certainly seen an improvement in us in the second half against Leeds and the game at the weekend was much improved. We put the full package together and in my eyes thoroughly deserved to win. It was good to see. We’ve got to build on that.
“We talk about confidence and to win is the most important thing. You could see the confidence grow in the team. We played very well at the weekend – we must stick with it. “
