Alan Pardew reveals that he is still interested in bringing Andy Carroll to Newcastle United before the end of the transfer window.

Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew has revealed that he is still interested in signing Liverpool striker Andy Carroll.

The Magpies reportedly failed in a bid to bring Carroll back to his former club earlier this summer but Pardew admits he is still open to the idea of bringing the 23-year-old to the North East.

However, the Toon manager has revealed that any offer hinges on whether the Newcastle board agree that it is financially feasible.

Pardew said: "That is above me that deal, it is a financial deal that will be done at board level if Liverpool agree.

"If I was saying on a playing level would I like him in the squad, of course I would he would add a nice dimension to us."

Newcastle suffered their first defeat of the Premier League season on Saturday to Chelsea.
