Tottenham's Keane and Bentley fit Newcastle bill says boss

Unwanted Tottenham players Robbie Keane and David Bentley fit the bill to come to Newcastle United says manager Alan Pardew. After guiding his side to a vital 1-0 away victory over Wigan Athletic on Sunday afternoon, Pardew spoke of his side's likely involvement in the winter transfer window and confirmed that both Keane and Bentley could make an impact in a black and white shirt.

"There is a lot in both of those, but I don't know if they are for us," he told Sky Sports 1.

"You have got to make sure that the decision you make is the correct one. And the most important thing, I think, for this particular club is that they can carry the shirt and be big enough and bold enough to play with the expectation.

"Those two players obviously fit that bill."
