The New Paolo Di Canio
Tevez has signed from Brazilian side Corinthians along with his club-mate Javier Mascherano.
Pardew: 'It is a massive coup for us. I've said all along that, while signing young English players remains very important to our transfer policy, I want to take this club forward and will get talent from wherever it is available.
'I want nothing to stand in the way of doing everything we can to win a trophy for this great club.'
