Alan Pardew: "We are still just looking at making offers and making calls.
"There will be some activity probably in the last few days of the window and I hope we will be part of that.
"As much as we want a player - and we actually want two with Wayne (Routledge) going - it has to be right. We will not rush into anything.
"That is the most important thing, and we are still looking at our squad as well.
"Andy (Carroll) hopefully won't be too long and Cheik (Tiote) will be coming back soon so that will give us a big boost."
