Pardew to assess transfer plans now duo are available

  Pardew to assess transfer plans now duo are available Alan Pardew is waiting for the return of Nacer Chadli and Matt Phillips before he can accurately assess what West Brom’s plans should be in the January window, according to the Birmingham Mail. Pardew confirmed that the attacking duo will travel to Stoke this weekend, giving the former Newcastle and Crystal Palace boss options ahead of what is a crucial match for the Baggies. With James Morrison still to come back too, Pardew believes that his squad has more to offer in an attacking sense, and admits that he is keen on unearthing just how much. That will certainly have been boosted by the returning pair of internationals, who could yet have a significant impact on resurrecting Albion’s season, having not yet been available since Pardew took his place at the helm. Talking about Chadli and Phillips’ impending return, Pardew said; “With the players I have available I think they [Chadli and Phillips] will both be taken.” “I feel for the team a little bit. Some big creative forces haven’t been available. It will be nice to see them back and then to see what that offers.” “I can’t gauge that yet because I haven’t had them. That period will definitely be before the end of January and I’ll know a little bit more then.” “Certainly in terms of looking at the squad, I don’t want to call them an honest, great group of players because I think that’s been said enough times.” “I think there’s more quality in that dressing room, and I need to get it out onto the pitch.” “More technical quality, more exuberance in their play, and that’s really where I’m at with them.” West Brom currently sit in 19th place in the Premier League with 14 points. Stoke, their next opponents, sit in 17th place above the drop zone, just two points ahead of Albion.

Norwich City midfielder Adam Phillips is set to sign for League Two side Cambridge.

According to the Pink’Un, Phillips is close to signing for Cambridge on loan until the end of the season.

Phillips will join a host of Norwich youngsters who are currently out on loan. Carlton Morris and Ben Godfrey are impressing in their loan stint at Shrewsbury.

The 19-year-old joined Norwich on a free transfer from Liverpool in the summer and has already been made captain of the under-23 side.

On top of that, Phillips has been on the bench twice for the first-team this season, but is yet to make his senior debut.

Cambridge are 12th in League Two and will be hoping Phillips can come in to strengthen their play-off push.

The midfielder needs senior first-team football under his belt and Daniel Farke will be hoping he gains invaluable experience playing for Cambridge.

Le Mans-winning engineer Leena Gade joins SPM, IndyCar .
Leena Gade brings an impressive resumé to IndyCar: an Ambassador for the FIA Commission for Women in Motorsport; a three-time Le Mans-winning race engineer in LMP1 with Audi; Bentley Racing engineer; now James Hinchcliffe’s race engineer at Schmidt Peterson Motorsports. In addition to her impressive resumé, her trophy case includes, the FIA World Endurance Championship ‘Man of the Year’; and the C&R Racing Women in Technology award. Gade appointment is a first for IndyCar and SPM, as the first female lead race engineer in the series. The Briton told Motorsport that she watched and was interested in IndyCar, citing Nigel Mansell’s IndyCar stint as the primary reason. “I’m really honored that I’ve got a chance to come across and work in IndyCar. “When I was a kid, I used to watch IndyCar, especially when Nigel Mansell first came over, and I followed it quite a lot. During my sportscar days, it was a little less so, until I had friends come across to the US to work in it like Piers [Phillips, general manager of SPM].” It appears that Gade’s connection with Phillips prompted the move. “There was significant interest in Leena amongst the international motorsports community,” said Phillips. “So we’re really excited that she sees where we’re taking SPM, believes in what we’re doing and that she is now a part of our organization. “I’ve known Leena for quite some time now, and I’ve worked alongside her, so I knew the credit she’s been given is well deserved.
