Eddie Howe spotted in the stands Newcastle’s hunt for a new manager had seemingly come to an end at the weekend, with former Bournemouth and Burnley boss Eddie Howe spotted in the stands as they took on Brighton and Hove Albion.
While the English boss will not have been amazed by what he saw, a largely dispiriting Newcastle performance, he will nonetheless be happy to have seen them cling on manfully for a point at the AMEX.

With lots of work to do, he will be grateful for the international break to get to know his players.

In a statement, the Tyneside club said:
Newcastle United are delighted to confirm the appointment of Eddie Howe as the club’s new head coach on a contract until summer 2024.
Eddie said: “It is a great honour to become head coach of a club with the stature and history of Newcastle United. It is a very proud day for me and my family.

“I would like to thank the club’s owners for this opportunity and thank the club’s supporters for the incredible welcome they have already given me. I am very excited to begin our journey together.”
Meanwhile, co-owner Amanda Staveley added:
“We have been incredibly impressed by Eddie through what has been a rigorous recruitment process.
