Newcastle United No2 John Carver says they're confident of success in this summer's transfer market.
Carver says that he and boss Alan Pardew are cool about the transfer situation at the moment, with many Premier League clubs prepared to bide their time before pouncing on targets.
Carver told the Evening Chronicle: "The manager has already said that he wants players to get bums on seats at St James' Park, and that's what we're working to do.
"There are a lot of negotiations going on, and there has been progress.
"But, like everyone else, we're waiting to hear back from clubs and players.
"This is a huge club, and not so long ago it was playing Champions League football and attracting top players.
"We hope, in time, we can get back to that situation, but this is still a club which sells itself because of its fan-base.
"We're in a strong position."
