Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew has BANNED fans from the training ground.

He has apologised to Newcastle fans for boarding up the training ground – a step taken because his team selection and tactics have been continually leaked this season.

Pardew explained to the Evening Chronicle: “There is too much information going out of this training ground to the opposition and I am not going to have it any more.

“I don’t think I should be boarding up the training ground around my main pitch, which I have had to do.

“People are coming and looking through the fence and putting my team on the internet and giving it to the press. Therefore, what I have stopped is the real fans coming to get a view of us.

“That how I have to be, I am afraid.”
