Javier SaviolaNewcastle United have been linked with a loan move for Real Madrid forward Javier Saviola

The Argentina international has been on the fringes of the Bernabeu squad and would be a useful addition to the Newcastle squad currently thin in the forward ranks with both Michael Owen and Mark Viduka struggling for fitness.

After Newcastle's impressive showing in the draw with Manchester United at Old Trafford at the weekend, Keegan was hopeful that Mike Ashley, the club's owner, will be moved to make a "wow signing" to further boost morale.

The 26-year-old Saviola is keen to secure regular football after making just nine first-team appearances for the Spanish club and is thought to be eager to move on.

Last week, Ashley told corporate box holders at St James's Park that he will ensure that a top signing is made to lift the team.

And Keegan responded: "A wow signing? I am looking forward to that very much! Now he has said it.

"Saviola? That would be nice for starters. Dennis Wise, Tony Jiminez, Derek Llambias, we are working really well together to get quality players in."
