Newcastle United confirm Eddie Howe as new Head Coach

Newcastle United have completed the appointment of Eddie Howe as their new Head Coach.

The former Bournemouth boss will take over from caretaker manager Graeme Jones, who has took charge of the last three matches.

Howe has been out of management for over a year following the relegation of Bournemouth from the Premier League.

It is undeniable that Howe was successful at the Cherries, leading them to a record 9th place finish in 2017.

Newcastle currently sit 19th in the Premier League and are the only club not to win a single game this season, 11 matches into the campaign and are five points away from safety.

Howe’s first game in charge will come after the international break on Saturday 20th November, as the magpies host Brentford at St. James’ Park.

Speaking to NUFC.com, Howe 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.”

Newcastle co-owner, Amanda Staveley also said: “He is a great fit for what we are trying to build here. We are delighted to welcome Eddie and his staff to St. James’ Park and very much look forward to working together towards our collective ambitions.”
