Joe Kinnear has had his month to month contract extended until the end of the season.
Kinnear was made temporary manager of Newcastle United in September following the walk out by Kevin Keegan, having improved Newcastle’s fortunes since his arrival, Newcastle have now extended his contract until the end of the season.
Despite still sitting in the relegation zone, this show of faith in Kinnear will allow him to look forward with the club, at least for this term and consider the options available to the club during the January transfer window.
Ever since I came to Newcastle United I have thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The players have been great to work with and the fans have made me feel at home since day one.
We have a big challenge ahead of us for the rest of the season but together I’m confident we will make good progress.
We have some very good players already at this club and hopefully we can further strengthen the squad in January and I will be working very closely with the directors to try to achieve that.
