The Toon boss has already said (in November): "Mike (Ashley) won''t throw money around, and perhaps we need to sell before we can spend."

Alan Pardew: "I think we can be very calculated in this window. If you are in a good position, there is no need to rush anything.

"In the corresponding window last year, we really needed to do some business and when you need to do business, I think it is a difficult window.

"When you don''t need to do business, which perhaps you can argue we don''t, then maybe you can look at it in a more calculated manner.

"The last 10 games have proven our consistency, that we''re a good side," he added.

"Whether we can be a great side, we will have to wait and see.

"We already have one more point than we did in the season when we finished fifth two years ago, so we''re in good shape."
