Newcastle United manager Rafa Benitez is said to be furious with the club’s board after failing to sign Joselu from Stoke.
The Spaniard, who has seen a £12 million bid for Joselu turned down, is desperate to sign a striker before the new campaign kicks off in just under a weeks time.
Benitez is also frustrated by the board’s decision to not re-sign Andros Townsend from Crystal Palace.
The winger was linked with a move back to Newcastle in January and Benitez is keen to re-sign the player that left the club following their relegation from the Premier League.
Townsend is thought to be available this summer and Palace have already rejected a £10 million offer from the Magpies.
Newcastle have been busy in the market this summer but are yet to bring in a recognised striker.
