Newcastle manager Alan Pardew has said today that he has worked very well with new Managing Director Lee Charnley in the transfer market so far this summer, and that Lee and him talk every day. Alan has also said Newcastle are all ready to move in the transfer market again.

And while Newcastle have already signed six good players in the transfer market this summer, and news boys Remy Cabella and Daryl Janmaat will be joining the squad Pardew next week, the manager has said Newcastle are ready to move when any opportunity presents itself.
Translation – the right player becomes available at the right price.
This is some of what the Newcastle manager has said today:
“I’ve worked really well with Lee this summer,” “We’ve talked every day, and we’re going to do that until the end of the window.”
“If anything that comes along works for us financially and, more importantly, on the football front, then we’ll move.”
“We’re in good shape,” “We’ve got six players in already. We’ve done our business early.” “That was the key to it.”
“We’ve done very well to have five big hitters in at this time. I’m really pleased.”
Newcastle have done very well this summer, but we still need more firepower up front and we need at least one experienced striker added to the ranks before the end of August.
23 year-old Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette is target – but he has just signed a new three-year deal at his French club.
22 year-old World Cup striker Joel Campbell of Arsenal is available, but he’s never even played in the Premier League, so he is hardly a proven goalscorer at the top level.
We have also been linked with midfielder Clement Grenier – and we would like to see an improved bid go in from Newcastle, because we think it’s possible we could get the French International play maker to Tyneside.
