Newcastle chairman Chris Mort insisted the club would take their time to find the right manager after Harry Redknapp´s withdrawal from the race to succeed Sam Allardyce on Saturday.

Redknapp´s decision to stay at Portsmouth after holding talks with Mort on Friday sent the Magpies back to the drawing board, although the chairman insists the 60-year-old was only one of a series of potential candidates.

In a statement released on the club´s official website, Mort said: "In the process of appointing a new manager at Newcastle United, we have identified and spoken to a number of potential candidates."
