ALAN Pardew has called on Newcastle United fans to be patient as the club closes in on its transfer targets.

Pardew had been hopeful of a breakthrough last week, but Lille rejected an improved £5m bid for defender Mathieu Debuchy.

Up to now, United’s only signings have been the lower-profile acquisitions of Romain Amalfitano, Curtis Good and Gael Bigirimana.

Pardew’s also keen to add depth and experience to his squad ahead of a potentially-gruelling campaign.

However, he has faith in the club’s younger players, and their potential was evident in last night’s comfortable 5-1 win over Hartlepool United.

“My message would just to be patient,” Pardew said.

“We’ve got a great side, and a great underbelly to the team.

“If we add one or two, or even three, we’ll have a great squad.”
