Newcastle manager Alan Pardew is satisfied with the way the transfer window has gone for him so far - although he admits getting another player in before it closes would be "the icing on the cake".

The Magpies confirmed their fourth new signing of the summer in midfielder Vurnon Anita, the 23-year-old Holland international joining from Ajax on a five-year contract.

Speaking about the Anita deal at a pre-match press conference ahead of Newcastle's Barclays Premier League opener at home against Tottenham this weekend, Pardew said: "It was pleasing. Ajax are a fantastic club and to take a player out of there is difficult, especially one of their better players."
