Toon And Kolo Toure?
The newspapers are full of stories about Newcastle making a surprise bid for troubled Manchester City centre-back Kolo Toure in January.
With Steven Taylor out for the remainder of the season and skipper Fabricio Coloccini ruled out for a month, Pardew is in desperate need of a centre-back ... which could (allegedly) see him enquire about Kolo Toure.
The Ivorian has not featured for Man City as much as the 30-year-old would have liked and has been heavily critical of his current club.
Manchester City want around £4 million for him.
