Alan Pardew believes Northern Ireland defender Shane Ferguson has a big future on Tyneside.
Alan Pardew: "I am a big admirer of him.
"Shane gives us a bit of energy - he is positive.
"You could tell we were lacking energy before he came on.
"We were not bright in the mind against Swansea and Bolton - they were two tough games for us.
"He wants to cross the ball and that is brilliant when you have the strikers we have.
"He put a few crosses in and won us a few corners. He did his job defensively - he has a big future here."
