Manager insists there is no problem in Magpies back room.
Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew insists that he has no problem with the club’s new director of football Joe Kinnear and has backed him to bring in the new faces that the side so desperately needs this summer, Sky Sports reports.
Pardew is now working alongside Kinnear and chief scout Graham Carr in a bid to find fresh attacking options to add to his squad.
The Magpies are understood to have made an increased offer of £6.9million for Lyon striker Bafetimbi ‘Baby Drogba’ Gomis whilst QPR speed demon Loic Remy has also been linked with a season-long loan deal.
Kinnear was brought into the club last month by owner Mike Ashley and there had been reports of unrest in the camp ahead of the new season, something which Pardew has moved to deny.
“Myself and Graham Carr have given Joe the targets, but they’re difficult to get over the line,” Pardew told Sky Sports.
“And I’m sure Joe’s trying to be very patient in trying to get the right player for us.
“There’s been no problem (with Kinnear). Joe’s job is to make sure that I get the support I need and he’s trying to do everything he can to do that.
“It’s obvious at the moment that we need a player or two and hopefully he can do that.
“We’re in good shape. We’ve got a strong squad, but we just need a little tip over the edge to give us that depth that we need.”
