Daniel Sturridge is facing another month out at West Brom.
Signing Sturridge was Pardew's only major new piece of transfer business at the Premier League basement club, who are seven points adrift.
But Sturridge is not expected back “imminently" due to a hamstring problem earlier this month which originally ruled him out for just two weeks.
The Mirror says he moved to WBA for a £1.5million loan fee and his £120,000-a-week wages.
But he limped off just three minutes into Albion's 3–0 loss at Chelsea on February 12 and has played just 77 minutes for the club.
