Newcastle United have been urged by former manager Alan Pardew to sign former Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea.

The Spaniard has been without a club since his contract at Manchester United ended in the summer and the club opted to sign Andre Onana.

De Gea has recently been linked with a move to Inter Miami.

But Alan Pardew believes De Gea would be a “perfect fit” at St James’ Park.

“De Gea is available. If you’re the Newcastle manager and you’ve got this funding that you’ve got, you’re going to go for the best. I think he’s the best that’s out there,” Pardew said on talkSPORT.

“If I was his agent I’d be ringing them straight away because it seems like a perfect fit to me. It would only be about how long the contract would be, would it just be to the end of the season?

“Just give him a window to show himself, De Gea, or maybe longer to have direct competition. All of that to be discussed. But I think that is a definite possibility.”
