Carr rewarded with extended contract

Published Add your comment

Newcastle's influential chief scout Graham Carr has signed an eight-year contract to keep him with the club until the age of 75.

Carr identified much of the talent in Alan Pardew's team that finished fifth in the Barclays Premier League, defying expectations of a season of struggle at St James' Park.

He has picked out the likes of Hatem Ben Arfa, Cheick Tiote, Yohan Cabaye, Papiss Cisse and Sylvain Marveaux, with the former Northampton and Blackpool manager becoming a key man on the Newcastle staff, delighting owner Mike Ashley in bringing in major talent to fit the club's limited budget.
