Alan Pardew ‘We Are In Good Shape, We have Done Our Business Early’

6 years ago

Alan Pardew has claimed that Newcastle United are in ‘good shape’ as they have done their transfer business early in this summer window.

The Newcastle manager has congratulated himself and others at the club by stating, “We have done very well to have five big hitters in at this time.”

The odd man out is Ayoze Perez who even Pardew accepts is somebody hopefully for the longer term, though if no other new strikers are brought in…

As for further signings, Pardew has reverted back to words that he has used often before, saying that if another deal comes along that works financially and playing wise for the club then they will make a move.

Whenever Pardew has spoken along these lines previously, the club has then signed nobody, the inference being only if a signing was seen as a ‘no-brainer’ that it would actually happen.

Speaking to the Shields Gazette Alan Pardew said;

“We’re in good shape, we’ve got six players in already, we’ve done our business early.

“That’s the key to it, we have done very well to have five big hitters in at this time, I am really pleased.

“I have worked really well with Lee Charnley this summer, we have talked every day and we are going to do that until the end of the window.

“If anything comes along that works for us financially, and more importantly on the football front, then we will move.”
