Alan Pardew hints at more Newcastle United arrivals

Alan Pardew

Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew has hinted that his summer spending may not be over yet.

The Magpies boss has been busy in the transfer window so far bringing in no fewer than nine players to St James' Park to ease some of the fan fury that greeted the club after they failed to replace Yohan Cabaye in January.

The Toon sold the France international midfielder to Paris Saint-Germain, but did not find a suitable signing to take the Les Bleus star's place in the squad.

Pardew was also acutely aware of his need to strengthen in the club's striking department after Luuk de Jong and Loic Remy returned to their parent clubs around the same time Shola Ameobi departed, earlier this summer.

The Newcastle boss has so far signed Remy Cabella, Jack Colback, Facundo Ferreyra, Daryl Janmaat, Siem de Jong, Ayoze Perez and Emmanuel Riviere to the club, while Karl Darlow and Jamal Lascelles will stay with Nottingham Forest for the coming campaign.

However, despite the huge influx, Pardew has indicated that his spending is not yet over, and he may add to his ranks if the right deal becomes available before the September 1 transfer deadline.

In an open training day at the club's St James' Park Pardew told Sky Sports News. "We've been very much on the ball with transfers. I think if something comes along that we think is right for us, then we have got scope to move.

"Whether we do or not, depends on the finance and whether it is right. We're really pleased with the work we have done. But the proof is in the pudding and we need to deliver on a Saturday, or Sunday as it is in this case against the champions (Manchester City).

"We're looking forward to it, we're in good shape and had a good pre-season."

Newcastle have lost James Tavernier, Dan Gosling and Romain Amalfitano in the close season, while Sylvain Marveaux has joined Guingamp on loan for the season.

However, the biggest departure is undoubtedly France international right-back Mathieu Debuchy, who joined Arsenal as Bacary Sagna's replacement for around £12 million.

Pardew has previously been linked with a return for last season's top scorer Remy, who is still at Queens Park Rangers after his proposed move to Liverpool fell through amid fears over the Frenchman's medical results.
