In a surprise move, Newcastle United found a fourth striker on the final day of the transfer season as Guiseppe Rossi, Manchester United's promising young striker, secured a year-long loan deal with the Tyneside club.

Man Utd's decision to let Rossi go means that, barring any late transfer movement, Sir Alex Ferguson will have to settle for the four strikers at his disposal: Wayne Rooney, Luis Saha, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Alan Smith.

Owen Hargreaves will not be allowed to leave Bayern Munich, while Marcos Senna was taken off the block by Villarreal. Rossi's loan spell with Newcastle is surprising given United's inability to replace striker Ruud Van Nistelrooy, who left for Real Madrid In July.
