Alan Pardew has time to 'grow' Newcastle into successful club

Alan Pardew says his eight-year contract with Newcastle will allow him to "grow the club from below" to make them a successful team.

The 51-year-old is under contract until 2020 after guiding the club to fifth place in last season's Premier League and a spot in the Europa League.

Speaking to Football Focus, Pardew admits Newcastle "haven't played brilliantly this year" but is hoping for the club's fortunes to start improving.
