Pardew has already begun making plans for the summer and wants Spurs flier Andros Townsend, who has fallen out of favour at White Hart Lane.
Whether or not he gets the chance to rebuild next season is up to Ashley, but Pardew will head for talks with the owner next week.
The Newcastle boss has been told his French revolution is NOT WORKING and Ashley believes that bringing in players with more domestic experience will give United more of a chance next season.
Pardew is no stranger to Townsend and spoke of his admiraton for him in October when he spoke to Sky Sports shortly after the winger’s international debut.
Alan Pardew: “We know (Townsend) because there was talk of him going out on loan.
“Obviously, when you look at his career, he’s been out on loan a number of times and we looked at him this year and thought ‘would he interest us?’. We weren’t sure; I think that’s where everybody was at the start of the season.’
“You’re talking about a high level (Premier League). We’ve got fantastic players at our football club and is he better than the ones we’ve got?
“I was a bit like ‘Hmm, not sure’. I think (Andre Villas-Boas) was a little bit like that as well.
"But fair play to the lad, he’s come into Tottenham’s team and done terrific and now he’s made that extra step which is great for England and Spurs in particular.”
