Newcastle have now agreed Unai Emery deal – Fee & contract details revealed in new report

The Times are reporting that Newcastle United have now struck a deal to bring Unai Emery to St James’ Park.

They claim that a £5m compensation package has been agreed between Newcastle United and Villarreal for Emery’s services, also revealing details of the contract he is expected to sign on Tyneside.

It’s said he will sign a THREE-year deal at the club – which includes an option to extend by a further year, potentially keeping him at Newcastle until 2025.

Martin Hardy (The Times) also writes that he looks set to take charge of our upcoming clash with Brighton on Saturday, with his official appointment expected to be announced in the coming days.

The report states that Eddie Howe had been considered, however it seems Emery impressed the new NUFC board during a Zoom call held last Friday and looks set to become Steve Bruce’s long-term replacement.

It remains to be seen if he’ll take charge of Villarreal’s UCL clash with Young Boys tonight, however Sky Sports have suggested he could lead the La Liga side for the final time before travelling to Tyneside tomorrow.

With us second bottom, without a win in 10 league games and six points from safety, let’s hope this news is true – and followed by a big win this weekend!

A top manager with unfinished business in England and a clear sign that our new owners have the ambition required to achieve more than just Premier League safety in the coming seasons.

  1. Well at least he has PL experience with Arsenal, he has a good track record and won trophies, just hope he is in place for Brighton. HWTL

  2. Let’s hope the Press Report is right

    It will be great to have a MANAGER after a 3 year wait

    How we hope it’s a deal to bring his own team and we clear out ALL the first team coaches – Bruce’s deadwood mates – as the new guy wouldn’t have a chance!

  3. Will give him a chance, but not that impressed, his first task will be to let everyone know he is the BOSS, the so called superstars of PSG would not let him do that, very similiar to the Spurs situation where it would appear that the likes of Kane etc would not let Stanto be the manager. You could see at PSG the players took no notice of him. At Arsenal all he did was waves his arms at them. (try finding a photo of him where he in waving his arms – its not easy.
    Advice to Unai, get someone in to help you in the early days, to smooth out communication problems, rate all the players as 0 and then make your own judgement, appoint a captain that speaks Spanish as well as English.
