Alan Pardew looked almost certain to lose his job at the helm of Newcastle United, following a disastrous second half of the season which saw him banned for seven Premier League matches for head-butting Hull's David Meyler and fans calling for his head after a spell of 14 defeats from 18. 

But the former West Ham and Southampton boss, who managed to keep his job yesterday, is set to ask billionaire owner Mike Ashley for funds to sign five new players in order to improve on their 10th-placed finish in England's top flight this season, according to the Daily Star

Newcastle have not signed a player on permanent deal for 18 months, but Pardew plans to splash out this summer to avoid a repeat of last season, which following the sale of Yohan Cabaye to PSG, saw high-levels of fan unrest, culminating in a 69th-minute planned walkout during the Magpies last home match against Cardiff City. 

Swansea's Jonjo Shelvey, Aston Villa duo Andreas Wiemann and Fabian Delph, as well as Montpellier's Remy Cabella have all been linked with the club, who are looking for wholesale changes following the return of on-loan signings Loic Remy and Luuk de Jong back to their parent clubs, QPR and Ajax respectively.

While Pardew may be looking to bring in a host of players, Dan Gosling is set to join Championship side Bournemouth, while Shola and brother Sammy Ameobi are set to leave the club, as well as former Manchester United midfielder Gabriel Obertan.

Winger Hatem Ben Arfa and defender Steven Taylor's long-term futures also remain a grey area.
