Pardew Hits Back At Bayer Leverkusen!

Alan Pardew has hit back at claims from the agent of Bayer Leverkusen winger Tranquillo Barnetta that his player "has no intention of joining Newcastle". The player's agent said Newcastle had offered his player £40,000 per week and that was a ridiculous figure. Alan Pardew: "It's obvious we need to resolve the Joey situation. We also need to bring some players into this club. "I know there's interest in Jose, but no concrete interest. We are poised to react to that. "We need a signing or two. I haven't even considered that (Barton's replacement). Like I said, it is a time for reflection. "In terms of those comments (from McIntosh) I'm not even going to go there. To say 40,000 is a derisory offer - that's ridiculous. "Enrique is still here and will play on Saturday. "I don't see an issue that he won't start. I know there's interest in Jose, but no concrete interest. We are poised to react to that. "As for Wayne I'm not sure if that deal is finalised but I believe it is very close." .
