Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew is delighted with the depth of his squad.

Pardew is pleased with the work done in the winter market.

"We have had a small squad since I have been here and now for the first time, I think I have the full allocation, and that goes without the injury crisis we have suffered this particular year.

"We are up to full strength really and now it is about making sure we get the victories we need to build on this.

"People keep talking about finishing fifth last year and this and that, but that team, I have never been able to field because of injuries or whatever.

"We now have a strong squad. We will probably have a new look to us and that new look hopefully settles quickly because we have not got a lot of games left.

"It may seem like it, but it won't be in five games' time if we are still in this same position."
