Staveley receives Unai Emery boost as NUFC prepare for hectic 48 hours – Report

According to The Mail’s Craig Hope, Unai Emery has informed Amanda Staveley that he is keen to become the new Newcastle United manager.

The report states that the Spaniard could even take his first training session on Thursday if the final details of the deal can be sorted today.

It’s even said the session could be delayed until Thursday afternoon if need be, with the new owners eager to have Emery in position in good time for Saturday’s trip to Brighton.

Hope claims there is still a chance his appointment is not signed, sealed and delivered in time for this weekend’s game, however it’s believed he’ll be watching his new side from the stands at The Amex, at the very least.

Speaking after Villarreal’s 2-0 win over Young Boys in the Champions League last night, Emery told the Spanish press that he’d received ‘interest’ from Newcastle but ‘no offer yet’ – although it seems that could be about to change as NUFC prepare to activate his £6m buyout clause.

The Mail state that the 50-year-old looks set to land the job ahead of fellow contenders Lucien Favre, Eddie Howe, Paulo Fonseca and Roberto Martinez, claiming that his ‘passion for the role’ and ability to organise defences left Amanda Staveley adamant he was the man to drag us clear of the drop zone.

As a result, it seems the club expect a hectic 48 hours, being ‘confident’ the former Arsenal boss will accept their incoming offer and sign an ‘initial three-year-deal’ at St James’ Park.

Let’s hope we can strike a deal today, unveil him tomorrow and have him lead a couple of training sessions ahead of Saturday’s crucial trip to Brighton!

  1. NUFC are a shambles ON and now OFF the pitch

    HOW Many manager’s are going to be named = turning into a farce!

    NEED to get a Manager with his own team – replacing ALL first team coaching staff along with Jones!

    Surely not wanting rid of Jones, he was the genius behind any good result that we have had since January and when we had a bad result it was because of Bruce !!!

    It should have been a clear out of all the existing coaching staff right away, with the U23 manager taking charge until a new permanent manager was appointed.

    The number of names we have said is the next manager is ridiculous! PIF need to stop making announcements until everything is tied up and if it’s just paper speculation then ban all these papers because the reports are making a mockery of the club.
