Kinnear has been studying the list of free agents.
He told the Newcastle Chronicle: “I have had a long look at Uefa’s list of players who are out of contract and available to join other clubs.
“It is actually a massive list.
“It is full of players who have only played two games for their clubs, and they are not the sort of players I want for Newcastle United.
“Those types of players are not going to improve us and, to tell the truth, I already have better players here – even those who are on the fringe of the first-team.”
