Newcastle will not abandon the European market as director of football Joe Kinnear attempts to provide Alan Pardew with a stronger team.
But while Newcastle's horizons may be extended, Kinnear insists chief scout Graham Carr's expertise will not go to waste.
He told the Chronicle: "We will look abroad again with Graham Carr. I have had three days with Graham already.
"We have been palling up, so we will go abroad. We will go to everywhere in Europe looking at matches. We will scour the length and breadth of Europe to find what we want."
