Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew has revealed his January market business is already underway.

Pardew told the Sunday Sun there will only be TWO players coming in during January.

A deal for Sochaux's Modibo Maiga has already been wrapped up while a defender may also follow him into the club.

"We've looked at the African Nations Cup and we've looked at the next window," said the Toon boss.

"I think the maximum we would do is two players in.

"That would be our maximum. Then if anyone left, it would be a third."
