Alan Pardew has warned clubs targeting Newcastle’s biggest names they will have to really splash the cash to get them.

Midfielder Yohan Cabaye has been heavily linked with a move to French giants PSG, who publically declared an interest earlier this week. Steven Taylor and Hatem Ben Arfa are just two names who have also been linked by the press with moves away from Tyneside.

Pardew is desperate not to sell any of the men upon whom he hopes to build a side capable of bouncing back from last season’s disappointment.

He told the Chronicle: “I feel we are in a strong position financially to hold on to our players.

“If one of our top players goes, it will be a bid that blows the doors off. That’s it.”

Pardew added: “In terms of the big players, again we have not sold anybody. We have players under long-term contracts here. Hopefully we can add to that.”
