Pardew happy to work with Kinnear on Newcastle transfers

Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew insists he's happy working with football director Joe Kinnear on January signings.

Pardew isn't concerned about the club's transfer plans.

He told the Evening Chronicle: "The transfers, that is really a committee.

"We sit down, we discuss and we make sure that we make the right decision for the club.

"Finance comes into that, of course, but also the selection of what I need."

Pardew even went as far as praising Kinnear, despite the controversial former Wimbledon boss arriving back on Tyneside to a frosty reception from supporters. Pardew said: "With Joe's knowledge of football, he knows that the manager needs certain things.

"It has helped in my opinion."
