Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew is desperate to keep hold his best players in the final days of the summer market.

Toon midfielders Cheick Tiote and Yohan Cabaye are being linked with Arsenal today.

Pardew said: "All my players are important, and they are hard to replace now. You lose a big player now and you try and take someone out from somewhere else and they want a replacement and time is suddenly running down. You can't get anyone in and we want to avoid that."
