Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew doesn't expect an extra transfer cash boost from club owner Mike Ashley.

The sportswear magnate this week sold a four per cent stake in his Sports Direct company just weeks after bankrolling Pardew's January spending spree, which netted five senior players.

Pardew said with a smile: "No, I don't think any of that will be coming my way.

"The windfall is earned from the success of his companies and what we have to do is get our own success here on and off the pitch, and we are working well towards that to generate our own money.

"That's the brief that we have got and that's what we will have to do."
