Pardew retains Enrique hope

Newcastle boss Alan Pardew says that he is hopeful contract rebel Jose Enrique will stay with the club, despite interest from Liverpool.

Enrique has just one year left on his current deal at St James's Park and is keen to move on after a summer of upheaval at the club with Kevin Nolan joining West Ham and Joey Barton transfer listed.

However, Pardew hopes that Enrique will choose to extend his deal, after Newcastle's pre-season friendly against Fiorentina was abandoned because of water logging.

"I keep looking at him and smiling, hoping he is going to stay," Pardew said. "He smiles but hasn't signed a contract yet. He was terrific against a very good player [against Fiorentina] and showed why I want to keep him."

PSV Eindhoven full-back Erik Pieters is being touted as a possible replacement, with Pardew reported to be monitoring him closely.
