Pardew, who is yet to make any waves in the window, believes that his squad is good enough as it is, but admits that he is still looking to bring in a few new faces.
"I don't know if not signing anyone is bad news. I would say that bad news is losing a player, especially one of our top players and I do believe we are pretty strong in terms of that not happening," Pardew told the Sunday Sun.
"We are in a situation wherein we can hold off any offers that come our way, but if we get players in then great. I do need a couple of players, maybe three.
"However, I am very comfortable about going into our first game without any. If, to get a deal done, we need to show patience then that's what we will do. It's better to be patient with the ones that you want, rather than going down the list a little bit."
