Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew has ruled out making a move for a new striker in the emergency loan market.

Having missed out on signing the likes of Mevlut Erdinc and Bryan Ruiz in the summer transfer window, reports had suggested that the club would delve into the loan market to bolster their attacking options.

However, after failing to score for a second Barclays Premier League game of the season, Pardew admitted Newcastle were happy with their current squad.

"I've no intention of bringing one (a free agent) one," he said. "I'll go with the group."


"I think you have to remember I've got Hatem Ben Arfa training now," he continued.

"His imagination and flair on that pitch would have been a big asset for us - hopefully, fingers crossed, in two weeks' time he'll be on that pitch for us."

Despite signing Demba Ba on a free from West Ham United this summer, Newcastle are yet to full replace Andy Carroll, who was sold to Liverpool in the January transfer window.

Frustration has grown around St James' Park that the money recouped for Carroll, which totalled £35 million, hasn't been reinvested in the current crop.

James Beattie, who was released by Rangers this summer, was linked with a move to Newcastle.
