Cape Town - Former England manager Steve McClaren is set to be appointed Newcastle United manager according to reports.

McClaren was sacked by Derby County in May but the former Middlesbrough and FC Twente manager is not expected to be out of work for long as the Northern Echo reports that McClaren will be announced as Magpies boss before Wednesday.

McClaren will focus on attempting to keep Ivory Coast midfielder Cheick Tiote at the club before pressing forward with plans to bring QPR striker Charlie Austin to Newcastle.

Newcastle are attempting to move quickly for the in-demand striker but will need to offer QPR £20 million to convince the relegated club to sell their 18-goal striker.

The same source also links Micah Richards with a move to the club. Richards is out of contract after failing to do enough to earn a new deal at Manchester City.

Former Chelsea midfield talent Marco van Ginkel is also on the club's radar.
