Lee Charnley & Newcastle break ties
Newcastle United continued their plans with remodeling the club under new ownership today, after the Magpies parted ways with managing director Lee Charnley.
In an official statement, Charnley’s 22-year tenure on Tyneside officially came to an end, as the new board seeks to continue in their task of overseeing all operations.
#NUFC can confirm that Lee Charnley has left the club following a handover period with the new ownership group.

Charnley spent the last seven years of his time at Newcastle as managing director, and spoke positively of his time at the club in the wake of his departure;
“To have been at Newcastle United for 22 years has been an honour and a privilege, and the club, its people and our city will always be very special to me.
As it enters a new chapter in its history under new owners, I wish Amanda, the rest of the Board and everyone connected with the club every success.”
The long-time Newcastle director was said to be ‘hugely appreciated’ by Amanda Staveley after his experience helped the transitional period in the wake of the club purchase by investment conglomerate PIF, PCP Capital Partners, and RB Sports & Media.
An interview process for candidates for the role of CEO at the club is set to begin this week according to the official statement, with an announcement regarding an appointment expected in due course.
Transfer links continue to swirl on Tyneside
As movement at boardroom level continues to take shape along the Tyne, the Magpies continue to be linked with moving pieces regarding the first-team squad under new boss Eddie Howe.
Newcastle has been linked with a host of names of late, including a potential triple raid on Serie A clubs Inter Milan and Lazio for Stefan de Vrij, Marcelo Brozović, and Thomas Strakosha.
Certainly, Newcastle is targeting some credible names across the continent in a potential rebuilding program in the first-team that shows prudence rather than foolishness despite the massive financial backing the club can now call upon.
The Magpies are set to take on out of form Brentford at St. James’ Park in Eddie Howe’s first match in charge this weekend, in the hopes that the new manager bump will be enough to right the ship before January reinforcements arrive.
