Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew says that he is "open minded" about Joe Kinnear's position as director of football at the club.

Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew has admitted that he is "open minded" about the appointment of Joe Kinnear as director of football at St James' Park.

The 66-year-old, who signed a three-year contract at the club, will have the final say on transfers, which was met with controversy from a large number of supporters.

"I've had good experiences and bad experiences of it," Pardew told The Chronicle. "I'm very open minded to Joe's position. I will take it as I see it.

"People who work with me will know that I am my own man. I will manage this football club and manage this team to the best of my ability. On the back of last year I am even more motivated to do well this year."

Kinnear is currently on a pre-arranged holiday in Italy.
