Reading today completed the signing of Steven Sidwell for an undisclosed fee, believed to be in the region of £300,000, but Pardew won't have to sell off his best players to afford the deal.
Indeed, midfielder Jamie Lawrence is reportedly set to become Pardew's second signing of the week.
Speaking to readingfc.co.uk the Royals boss said: "I'm not under pressure top sell purely because the Chairman doesn't put me under pressure. I'm sure he'd like to bring in substantial sums for players but as a manger I want as many players as possible and he doesn't put me under pressure to sell.
"We've got severe competition here and that's what you want."
