Newcastle look set to make some big summer purchases after Alan Pardew revealed he is putting pressure on Mike Ashley to spend as much money as possible from Andy Carroll’s sale.
Carroll moved to Liverpool from Newcastle in January for £35 million, a record fee which was broken almost literally minutes later with Fernando Torres’ £50 million from Liverpool to Chelsea.
While fans have been skeptical as to how much of the £35 million kitty from Liverpool will go into buying new players this summer, Pardew has hinted that he is putting pressure on Ashley to ensure Newcastle spend big in the summer.
“We want to attract one or two big players, and bring on one or two youngsters as well,” Pardew said, as reported by the Daily Mirror.
“A performance like that will give the owner belief as well, that we’re doing things in the right way.
“If I was the [Newcastle] owner, I’d think my investment was a bit more secure.”
