Pardew wants international bosses to keep him informed over Newcastle players

Newcastle boss Alan Pardew wants international bosses to provide him with regular updates when players leave for overseas duty. Pardew said: "We lost [Shane] Ferguson injured on international duty; we have lost (Fabricio) Coloccini twice now injured on international duty and we have lost Tim (Krul) injured on international duty when he trained after the game, which we were disappointed about, if I am honest.

"Therefore, we have put in a procedure now that we want all international sides to inform us what the players are doing, and exactly what they are doing.

"With the technology we have today, GPS and everything else, we want a report back and to know what they are doing because we are handing these players over, to an extent on our pay, so we want to make sure they are looked after."
