Photos: Andros Townsend trains with Newcastle United along with 17-year-old Paul Woolston

The recent signing from Tottenham was in action.

It has been a good January in terms of transfer business at Newcastle United. Jonjo Shelvey and Henri Saivet have both arrived at the club but they still remain in the relegation places after a poor season so far.

Now they have pulled in Andros Townsend to help them in their pursuit of safety.

This weekend the players have no game, after they were sent tumbling out of the FA Cup by Watford earlier in the month.

Nonetheless the players were going through their paces yesterday - as they prepare to take on Everton this coming Wednesday.

One man who was being put through his paces was yet another new signing. Newcastle United picked up Andros Townsend from Tottenham Hotspur this week in a deal reported by The Guardian to be worth £12 million.

He was in action as he hopes to get his Toon debut at Goodison Park next week.

Also in action was Paul Woolston. The 17-year-old stopper has been with the club since 2013.

He left Sunderland that year, the club he supported as a boy, and made his debut for the Newcastle Under-21s aged just 15.

So he looks like a bright prospect for the future as well.
