Newcastle's Pardew: Enrique still here, Routledge almost gone

Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew has made it clear that there have been no concrete offers for left-back Jose Enrique.

The Spaniard has been linked with a St James' Park departure this summer but no interested clubs have yet come in a with a real bid.

Whilst Enrique looks set to stay, Pardew indicated that winger Wayne Routledge was set to finalise a move to Swansea City.

"Enrique is still here and will play on Saturday (against Fiorentina)," he said.

"I don't see an issue that he won't start. I know there's interest in Jose, but no concrete interest. We are poised to react to that.

"As for Wayne I'm not sure if that deal is finalised but I believe it is very close."
