Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew says he's under no pressure to sell his best players.

With the Magpies in a healthy financial position, Pardew believes it would take an offer of breathtaking proportions to persuade owner Mike Ashley to cash in.

He told the Evening Chronicle: "I feel we are in a strong position financially to hold on to our players.

"If one of our top players goes, it will be a bid that blows the doors off. That's it."
