Alan Pardew has looked to assure disgruntled Newcastle fans that the club will sign plenty of players this summer, according to the Express.

The Magpies boss has come under pressure in recent weeks, following his headutt on Hull City’s David Meyler which has coincided with an awful run of results.

Newcastle are on a run of four consecutive defeats without having scored, and some fans have started calling for Pardew to be sacked.

However, Pardew remains confident the club will make improvements in the summer.

“There is uncertainty among the fans about our intentions in the summer and perhaps I know a little bit more than them. I can feel a little bit more confident about it,” Pardew said.

“Some fans may fear we are not going to move forward but I think we will.

“We have got ourselves in a good position in terms of transfer preperation. We must make sure we strengthen well in the summer and we are not under any illusions about that. I’m not going to put a figure on how many are coming in but we are certainly going to be active.”
