But Pardew insists that he has no designs on Roy Hodgson's job as he plans to stay on Tyneside until he turns 60.
Pardew told the Sunday Mirror: "Can I fulfil all my ambitions with Newcastle? It's hard to say. You have to gauge your ambitions to the football club, to a degree.
"I do have ambitions internationally, I would like to do that at some point. Hopefully, I will see this contract out and then see what I'm going to do later on.
"I have always felt that a person can be a success as England manager. I won't change my opinion on that, but I don't think it's easy.
"Roy Hodgson probably has a tough spell as England manager because our pool of players is not as great as it used to be. Ultimately my ambition might reach that conclusion: to be England manager.
"It's not something I would not do and it's not something I want to do right now.
"It is difficult because Harry Redknapp came out and said he wanted to be the England manager one day and he got into a situation where he lost his job at Spurs."
