Newcastle boss Alan Pardew has revealed the club will not attempt to sign a striker in January after confirming the collapse of Modibo Maiga's proposed move to Tyneside.

The Sochaux frontman was expected to complete a £6million transfer but the deal broke down before Christmas after a medical revealed uncertainty over one of his knees.
