The Eagles have smashed their transfer record to land Benteke from Liverpool in a deal worth £27million, but Pardew does not want to stop there.

Pardew still only has Benteke and Connor Wickham as recognised out-and-out strikers, and he would love to get another one on board before the transfer window closes.

West Bromwich Albion striker Saido Berahino is still a target, but it remains to be seen if a deal can be hammered out with the Baggies, while Stoke are also keen.

When asked if he would like to bring in another striker, Pardew said: “Yes I think so, just someone to complement Connor [Wickham] and what Christian is going to do for us.”
