Pardew said: â€œKevin and Andy were two big characters who went out of the door. Luckily others emerged, or we would have been in Âtrouble. We havenâ€™t really missed Andy. Iâ€™m happy with the strikers I have â€“ Shola Ameobi, for instance, was magnificent the other night in Bruges.
â€œWe missed Andy a bit after he left in the January, but after that summer we were as good without him as we were with him. However, I would never dismiss bringing him back here."
