Thorn, it is understood has spoken to Newcastle United about Alan Smith and has been offered three of the Geordie team’s young players by Alan Pardew.
Speaking to Sky Blue Player at the club’s weekly press conference, Thorn said: "I made the phone call myself so I know it is ongoing. I have spoke to the manager and I am confident we will get one in so I know it could be there.
"We are working hard and closely to get a player in so hopefully it will come off for us.”
