Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew admits he needs to strengthen their attack.

Pardew was speaking after defeat at Liverpool.

"We have some good young players.

"We need offensively - some quality to come in.

"Hopefully we can secure those and give our fans something to hang on to for the pre-season.

"We need to show them that we are back to where we were in the first half of the season."
