Alan Pardew has revealed Mike Ashley will NOT be putting up the money to sign a striker in January after confirming the collapse of Modibo Maiga's proposed move to Tyneside.

Alan Pardew: "I don't think we will be bringing a striker in in this window after the collapse of Maiga, which we had put a lot of work into.

"As far as we are concerned, we will go with what we have got."

"It was just unfortunate, and unfortunate for the player.

"You can imagine the player is probably more disappointed than anybody else, but these things happen and we will have to do a lot of work now between now and the summer to locate another striker.

"You have to pay over the odds in this window, everybody does, and you have to accept that if you are going to invest in this window, and we won't in terms of a striker.

"We are looking at bringing maybe a defender in. We need to bring in a defender."
