Newcastle United football chief Joe Kinnear says the days of big money signings are over.

Kinnear said United will continue to work within a limited budget.

He said: "We will continue to operate in a financially responsible manner, buying only the right players for the right prices and not paying over the odds or making costly knee-jerk decisions.

"This is the reality of a well -run football club that lives within its means.

"When a deal is right and the player can add real quality and depth to the squad we have the ability to spend."
