The 21-year old winger has hardly featured for United since his summer move from Crystal Palace prompting Pardew to open the door for a possible January loan move to St James' Park.
"He's a Manchester United player, as far as I'm concerned," the Magpies boss told the press. "He's a player I know well. He played for my old team [Palace].
"He was absolutely phenomenal when they got promoted and he got a big move to Manchester United.
"Unfortunately, his career has stalled but, if an opportunity arises, we'll grasp it. If not, we won't."
