After months of growing pressure on Newcastle United manager, Alan Pardew, The Mirror has reported that he will stay in charge of the Magpies for next season.
Pardew, who received a final warning from the club and a seven game Premier League ban-following his infamous head-butt on Hull’s David Meyler, is set to keep hold of his position at St James Park after finalising his summer transfer plans.
Newcastle enjoyed early success last campaign, however, since Christmas and the sale of Yohan Cabaye to PSG, the side have struggled hugely.
From January onwards the club lost 14 out of 18, culminating in a planned walkout as protest to the current regime including both Pardew and owner Mike Ashley in a 3-0 victory over Cardiff City in their last home game.
With the second longest serving manager in England’s top flight set to be at the helm of the club next season, attention now turns to strengthening his squad, looking to build on the 10th-placed finish this term.
Lyon’s Batefimbi Gomis, Swansea’s Jonjo Shelvey and Aston Villa duo Fabian Delph and Andreas Weimann are all players rumoured to be targeted by the club as they look to spend the £19 million received for the sale of Cabaye in the last transfer window.
