Eddie Howe accepts NUFC job offer with former assistant also set to join – The Telegraph

According to The Telegraph, Eddie Howe has ‘provisionally accepted’ the Newcastle United job – but may not arrive in time for Saturday’s trip to Brighton.

Luke Edwards’ latest piece claims that our new owners have offered the 43-year-old a two-and-a-half-year contract, which could keep him on Tyneside until 2024.

The report also states that Howe will bring a few long-serving staff members with him – one being former assistant Jason Tindall.

Tindall worked alongside Howe at Bournemouth and is currently a coach at Sheffield United, having been sacked by the Cherries earlier this year during a brief spell in charge over the first half of the 2020/21 season.

It’s believed Howe is also happy to work with current NUFC coach Graeme Jones – who appears to have been given assurances over his future at the club.

The Telegraph also claim that Howe will bring three staff members with him, with Jason Tindall expected to be joined by former Bournemouth coaches Simon Weatherstone and Stephen Purches.

This would signal the end for Steve Agnew and Stephen Clemence – two coaches brought in after Steve Bruce’s arrival in 2019.

So, it’s not quite a done deal just yet, as our owners are said to be reluctant to get ahead of themselves after the way things panned out with Unai Emery, but it seems pretty certain that Eddie Howe will become the new manager of Newcastle United in the coming days!

Jones will remain in charge of the Newcastle United team against Brighton this weekend with Howe poised to become the club’s new manager at the start of the international break. Talks with Howe are progressing smoothly, but have not yet been finalised and after the experience of missing out on Emery earlier this week there is no talk of deals being done or definitive outcomes.

But the expectation is that Howe will agree to become Steve Bruce’s permanent replacement after the various strands of the consortium agreed on Wednesday night that he is the man they want to do the job.

The only other name given serious consideration, when Emery publicly snubbed an offer from Newcastle’s new owners, is Belgium’s Roberto Martinez, although he is understood to want to remain an international manager until the World Cup in Qatar next year.

Contact was swiftly made with both Howe and his agent on Wednesday and those talks were said to be positive as they continued on Thursday.

  1. So what this article is saying is Howe hasnt actually accepted the managers Job ,its Just theoretical. Thankyou for clearing that up NOT.


  2. Yes it will be something like a 2.5 year contract but pretty certain there will be a sacking clause if we get relegated. This supposedly one of the many reason why Emery didn’t come. Emery prefers to stay with a team from a place with a total population of just over 50K and with no expectations like he would have had here-draw your own conclusions. If it is Howe for the here and now so be it- can remember Gordon Lee/McGarry/Big Sam/ Kinnear/Pardew/Carver/McClaren/Bruce-against that background even the appointment of Howe is an up-grade. He won’t be here long term anyway based on the Man City model who started of with Hughes in charge.


  3. Still not impressed with this appointment, we need a man to keep us up not one who took his team down and then left?? The media and ex players swung this one. Awful. Hwtl


  4. To be fair kidda howe last season bournemouth had horrendous injuries and squad couldn’t cope so think your going bit far on that one look at the positives what he took over to where he took them highest pkace 9th which apart from a one off Season under pardew its lit better then what some of our other managers have achieved with arguably better teams so let’s give him a fair crack of the whip


  5. Don’t forget Backslider Fraser wouldn’t sign a contract extension when Covid hit – he’s rubbish but one feel’s he’ll be played no matter what…

    ..just to prove a point

    Disaster written ALL over this appointment & he wouldn’t get us back from the championship NO matter how much you throw at it


  6. Not happy with this we are going to struggle to stay up anyway but don’t think this appointment will help us hope I’m wrong.


  7. Player will be playing for their futures. Also Fraser was out of contract due to suspension of EPL fixtures and didnr sign an extension in case he got an injury that prevented him obtaining a contract elswhere so cant blame him for that!


  8. Perhaps nufc would have save some dignity with Howe by stating he was their chosen one not the next to chosen or the maybe chosen or who? Good Luck Mr Howe. Make sure you have a good get out clause xx but sincerely I hope you make it


  9. Once upon a daisy a football manager was that. A manager. So if now a manager moves the deal includes a defence manager, an attack manager, a physio, a goal manager, an interpreter. Remember Brian Clough haha. Look lads play your best or f off


  10. Michael sursham:

    So you can read?
    Good thing you can read because none of the other fans on here will have read exactly the same thing on all the other websites.


  11. If Jones picks the same starting line up as last week, failing to realise that Willock is by far our best box to box player and also retains our Championship quality central defenders when every Geordie and his dog can see that Schar and Fernandez are so much better then HE MUST HAVE NO ROLE AT THE CLUB ONCE HOWE TAKES OVER.
