Pardew Cooks Up Another Signing

Last updated : 31 January 2008 By Paul Crisp
After the departure of captain Andy Reid to Sunderland, with Greg Halford coming the opposite way, Pardew has now signed a like for like replacement for Reid in Cook.

Cook was signed from QPR in the summer for £2.5 million, but has struggled with injuries and doesnt look to be in new Cottagers boss Roy Hodgson's plans.

Pardew has now snapped up the 25-year-old and should be in the squad for Saturday's away trip to Scunthorpe, alongside Halford.
