Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew has plans for three Premier League-based signings.

The Telegraph says Pardew has told the club's new director of football, Joe Kinnear, he would like to sign Aston Villa's Darren Bent, Norwich's Anthony Pilkington and West Ham's James Tomkins.

Newcastle are also reportedly ready to offer as much as £20 million to St?Etienne to sign striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and exciting centre-back prospect Kurt Zouma.
