Newcastle United’s Alan Pardew is one of the Premier League managers that has been going through one of the busiest transfer windows as they have released and signed a large number of players but rumors still continue appearing claiming that things are still not done for Alan Pardew as he still wants to sign a few more players and reinforce his squad further.
Alan Pardew’s first match of the season saw him losing 2-0 against the current champions Manchester City and this loss can serve as another motivation for him to continue looking around in the transfer market for potential signings.
Siem de Jong, Ayoze Perez, Jack Colback, Remy Cabella, Emmanuel Riviere and Daryl Janmaat are all the players that have been signed by Alan Pardew on permanent contracts meanwhile there also are a number of other players that arrived to Newcastle United on loan deals.
The Frenchman Loic Remy made a name for himself during his loan deal as he performed with the Newcastle United during the previous season of the Premier League. Remy went on scoring goals in almost every single match he performed in for Newcastle United and later received a number of accolades including man of the match awards for his remarkable performances. When his loan deal with Newcastle United reached its end, he lured the attention of Arsenal and Liverpool.
Liverpool later went on offering a €8.5 million to QPR as they wanted to sign Loic Remy but the deal fell apart in the last moment as the Frenchman failed to complete his medical tests and now Newcastle United is back in the running to sign Remy but instead of another loan deal, Pardew wants to land a permanent deal this time around.

Spanish midfielder Thiago Alcantara has been ruled out of the FIFA World Cup 2014 after suffering a knee injury.
The Bayern Munich midfield maestro was expected to play a key role for the reigning world and European champions in this summer’s football extravaganza in Brazil but his injury means he will have to watch the event from his home in Bavaria.
The 23 year old was named in the provisional 30-man squad by Spain boss Vicente Del Bosque but the youngster will have to undergo a knee surgery after tearing a ligament last week.
He will also miss out on his team’s DFB Pokal final against Borussia Dortmund this weekend.
A Bayern Munich official released a statement confirming the setback for the Brazilian born Spanish midfielder and Bayern chief executive Karl Heinz Rummenigge said that it was a bitter blow for the player and that he feels sorry for him as well.
Thiago has missed a lot of action during the latter stages of the season but he hoped to be fit for the final few weeks with an eye on a place in the FIFA World Cup 2014 squad but this latest injury blow has completely ruled him out of the competition and he will not be able to return to action before November at the earliest.
Rummenigge went on to add that Thiago is a young player who dreamt of playing the World Cup in Brazil, where his father, former footballer and World Cup winner Mazinho hails from but those dreams have been shattered cruelly.
The German legend said the club will look after him and will give him all the attention medically that he needs to get him fit for the start of the season but missing the FIFA World Cup 2014 will be a bitter pill to swallow for him.
