Newcastle manager Alan Pardew is planning to spend wisely in the summer, despite receiving a massive £35 million cash injection from the sale of Andy Carroll.
“Everybody is looking to see what we are going to do and we are trying to make sure we cover all the bases before we make our move,” Pardew told reporters.
“We don’t want to make a mistake – there have been mistakes made here [before], so it’s very important to get those [decisions] right.”
Carroll left a gaping hole in Newcastle’s forward line when he left the Toon for Liverpool in the January transfer period. The £35 million Liverpool paid for the young striker has left Pardew in a very lucrative position in preparation for the summer, and the Newcastle manager needs to make some purchases to fill the forward and midfield gaps in the squad.
Fans were reportedly concerned that the money from Carroll's Liverpool sale wouldn't be being reinvested into the club, but Pardew has continually moved to assure fans that this won’t be the case.
“We want to attract one or two big players, and bring on one or two youngsters as well,” the Newcastle manager recently said.
“A performance like that will give the owner belief as well, that we’re doing things in the right way.
“If I was the owner, I’d think my investment was a bit more secure.”
