Pardew wants at least one more striker and further defensive cover, and Tiote is equally keen to see reinforcements arrive quickly to give the squad a much-needed boost.
Toon's Ivory Coast midfielder insisted: "Honestly, I think we need some more players in the squad, because we don't have a big squad.
"Now we've got Steven Taylor out for three games and Jonas Gutierrez is injured. It's going to be tough on us because we don't have a big squad. I hope the chairman is going to spend money on the club."
