Newcastle United owner Mike Ashley is expected to hand Alan Pardew a huge £60m transfer war chest this summer, according to the Daily Telegraph.

There had been growing reports that Alan Pardew would be sacked by Ashley following fan protests and a disappointing second-half of the season.

But it is now believed that Ashley is to hand Pardew the chance to rebuild a side capable of challenging for a Europa League spot for the entire campaign next year.

An official announcement of Ashley’s decision to stick with Pardew is expected within the next few days and is hoped to be followed up with the announcement of at least one or two new arrivals before the start of the World Cup next month.

Pardew is hoping to complete a deal that will see Loic Remy make his loan move permanent in the summer, while interest in Montpellier forward Remy Cabella, Swansea’s Jonjo Shelvey and Villa’s Fabian Delph hots up.

Meanwhile, the Magpies have been handed a transfer boost after Hertha Berlin striker Pierre-Michel Lasogga has revealed he wants a move to St. James’ Park this summer, with the 22-year-old expected to be available for around £8million.

    Must be time to renew season tickets, got to keep the rumor mill going so people buy boxes and renew season tickets, Ashley KNOWS the fans are loyal, why would he change a profitable strategy. He takes us for idiots and we do little to convince anyone otherwise.
    We’ve been given lies every season, why 60 million now?, Ashley is a clown shoe and needs to move on, Pardew is guilty of being a yes man because he wants to keep his job.

    Rio on a free to the toon, his experience and leadership will steady a shaky defense, even if he only plays a dozen games, it’s strength in depth, could do worse, 2 year contract?
