Newcastle set for Eddie Howe contract talks

A huge update has emerged regarding Newcastle United manager Eddie Howe and his future at St James’ Park…

What’s the talk?

According to the Daily Mail’s Craig Hope, PIF are set to discuss a contract extension with the Magpies head coach in the coming weeks.

He tweeted: “Exclusive: Newcastle to open talks with Eddie Howe over a new contract this summer.”

In Hope’s corresponding article, it is explained that Howe sees his future on Tyneside, with the club expecting a deal to be wrapped up ahead of the 2022/23 campaign.

Supporters will be delighted

Newcastle supporters will surely be delighted by this news, as it means that the club are set to secure Howe on an extended contract. This will ensure that they are not worrying about any other clubs tempting him away from St James’ Park, with his current deal due to expire in the summer of 2024.

Does Howe deserve a new deal?





Howe has been shortlisted for the Premier League Manager of the Year award, which shows that he is being appreciated both inside and outside of Newcastle.

Since joining the Magpies, the ex-Bournemouth boss has averaged 1.6 points per league game, accruing the magic 40-point haul in just 25 matches.

This comes after Steve Bruce averaged 0.38 points per game in his eight matches in charge at the start of the top-flight campaign. The current West Brom boss managed just three points before he left Tyneside in the autumn, and he left the club in the relegation zone upon his departure.

Howe duly came in and galvanised the team, and he is now set to be rewarded for his efforts with a new contract – and potentially an award from the Premier League to go with it.

Heading into the final day of the season on Sunday, Newcastle are in with a chance of finishing in the top half of the table. They are two points behind 10th-placed Brighton, and a win against Burnley at Turf Moor could see them end the campaign in the top ten.

This would a remarkable achievement, on top of what Howe has already accomplished, given where the club was languishing when the decision was made to cut ties with Bruce last October.

The 44-year-old has been fantastic for Newcastle so far, and that is why supporters will surely be delighted to read that he is in line for a fresh contract with the Magpies.
