Alan Pardew: “I think the big job for us this summer is keeping players.
“That is still the key. The transfer window remains wide open and everyone is back at work now and analysing what they did last year, looking at other teams and seeing what they did.
“A lot of people will look at us, so I’m not out the woods on this one.
“I don’t fear a big offer, I expect it.
"Whether it’s enough money to take one of our players away then we’ll have to wait and see.
“I would expect a bid for one of our marquee players. But they will need to pay a lot of money.
“If we do lose a marquee player to a highly inflated price then we’ve got to trust our judgement that we go to the market place and bring in an equivalent.”
