NEWSCASTLE: EDDIE HOWE IN TALKS TO BE NEXT THE MANAGER…

Eddie Howe is under serious consideration to take over at Newcastle after Villarreal manager Unai Emery rejected the chance to move to St James’ Park

Talks are ongoing between Newcastle and Eddie Howe over their vacant manager’s position.

Howe has been out of work since leaving Bournemouth at the end of the 2019/20 season following their relegation from the Premier League.

But the 43-year-old is under serious consideration to take over at Newcastle after Villarreal manager Unai Emery rejected the chance to move to St James’ Park.

Howe has held talks with Newcastle’s new owners in the past fortnight, as well as with the club’s previous owners before the takeover.

He attracted interest from Celtic earlier this year, but turned down the chance to replace Neil Lennon at Celtic Park

Newcastle owners are still considering alternative options, with Roberto Martinez and Paulo Fonseca among them.

Fonseca held talks with Newcastle two weeks ago, and it is understood the Portuguese would be keen to reignite discussions.

Coach Graeme Jones, who has previously worked with Martinez, remains in caretaker control of the first team and will be in the dugout for their match away at Brighton on Saturday.

Newcastle remain without a win and sit in 19th place, on four points from their opening 10 matches.

Emery released a statement on Wednesday to say he would not be leaving Villarreal to become Newcastle manager, despite holding talks with the club.
