Alan Pardew: Spreading the transfer net far and wide in an effort to land a new

The Magpies boss admits the transfer net has been spread 'worldwide' in an effort to bring attacking firepower into St James' Park.

He is convinced that those charged with the task of getting deals over the line will deliver, with Joe Kinnear having joined the ranks as Newcastle's director of football.

Pardew told Sky Sports News: "It's obvious, looking at our squad, that strikers is an area we are looking to strengthen. If I'm honest, we are looking worldwide in terms of making sure we get the right players."

On working with Kinnear, he added: "Not really much has changed for me. I've lost Derek Llambias, who was doing the transfers here, and I've gained Joe Kinnear. Hopefully Joe and our team here, and our board, can get a player over the line.

"People put two and two together and make five, really. I'm the manager of this football club and I'll make sure I manage it as I've always done at all my clubs, with our foot firmly planted forward and trying to take the game to other teams and trying to play an exciting brand of football.

"Last year we let ourselves down a little on that front. Hopefully we can show a better side to us at the start of this campaign."
