Alan Pardew has played down reports he made a bid to sign Thierry Henry, but Jeremie Aliadiere is thought to be one of the players under consideration. Alan Pardew "I don't think getting Henry is possible. "I haven't even thought about it, if I'm honest, but we will do over the next 48 hours. "There are one or two players we are looking at. "I don't think we are going to get anyone who could impact on the first team, but on the bench, I need to turn round to that bench and have people who can affect the game. "We will look, perhaps, to that market for maybe one or maybe two if necessary."
