Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew appealed to supporters to understand the club's financial capacity, as far as signing English talents is concerned.
The 52-year-old has used the Ligue 1 as a pool to acquire talents in recent past, which include the likes of Yohan Cabaye, Mathieu Debuchy, and Moussa Sissoko
“Clubs like Newcastle get accused of not signing English players, but these are prices mid-table teams in the Premier League simply cannot afford, unlike Champions League clubs with their extra revenue.” - Alan Pardew
"The fees being paid for players such as Luke Shaw and, it seems, Adam Lallana, illustrates an important point that supporters need to understand," his column read on the Independent.
"Clubs like Newcastle get accused of not signing English players, but these are prices mid-table teams in the Premier League simply cannot afford, unlike Champions League clubs with their extra revenue."
"We recently enquired about an unproven player not in the side at one of our top clubs, and we were asked £14million. He will not be joining."
"Yet we can pick up players such as Yohan Cabaye, Mathieu Debuchy and Moussa Sissoko for reasonable fees, all of who have been starring for France at the World Cup."
