John Carver says they'll seek to buy 'entertainers' at Newcastle United this summer.
Carver retains hope of keeping his job.
When asked if the players on the club's shortlist are the type of individuals that would get the Toon Army excited, Carver told the Evening Chronicle: "Absolutely.
"They are top players because we know this football club needs top players.
"And in the past we have maybe had a good group of 13 or 14 players.
"We need to go deeper than that and they know that, they are going to back it and support it."
