Newcastle's Pardew to play kids rather than go after more signings
Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew admits he will be giving more opportunities to his younger players next season.
"I don't envisage too many coming in because I have got some great young players who have not seen a lot of football," he said.
"We are going to be leaning on Haris Vuckic and [Shane] Ferguson and Sammy Ameobi a lot more than we did last year, Mehdi [Abeid], who hasn't really played here too much, so those extra games, I am looking forwards to because we have got a great under-belly of young players here who need games.
"I don't really want to bring in experienced players just to make my squad bigger, I just want us to be a tight ship, and we will utilise everybody we have at the club."
