Sky Sports issue Unai Emery update & reveal three back-up plans if NUFC move falls through

Sky Sports’ Keith Downie has issued a promising update on Unai Emery’s proposed move to St James’ Park.

Speaking outside St James’ Park, the North-East reporter has revealed that the 49-year-old is expected to take charge of Villarreal’s Champions League clash with Young Boys tonight before jetting to Tyneside for further talks tomorrow.

Here’s what he had to say outside SJP this morning:
