Major development in managerial hunt as agreement in principle reached with next Newcastle boss

Eddie Howe and Newcastle reach agreement

The circus act that has been Newcastle attempting to fill the void left in the wake of Steve Bruce parting ways with the Magpies could finally be coming to an end.

According to Sky Sports News, Newcastle have reached an agreement in principle with former Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe to pick up the reins at St. James’ Park.

Should terms be concluded with the 43-year-old Amersham-native, he will be in line to make his managerial debut against Graham Potter’s Brighton this weekend on the south coast at the American Express Community Stadium.

Newcastle have been left in a bit of a quandary after Unai Emery rejected the chance to join the newly-minted outfit, and despite fresh links with former AS Roma boss Paulo Fonseca, the club look set to put their faith in the 12-years of experience Howe can bring to the table.

Howe led Bournemouth in 458 matches during his time at the club while pushing them up the English footballing pyramid and into the Premier League for the first time in their history in 2015, while he perpetrated an unexpected top-half finish with the Cherries the following season when the club finished a highly respectable ninth, making him one of the darlings of the English management pool at the time.

Magpies eyeing surprising transfer moves

Though transfer links are always subject to change and a heavy amount of scrutiny, it is fully expected that Newcastle will commence with some measure of spending in January while building towards a summer recruitment crescendo.

The Magpies have now recently been linked with surprise interest in current Arsenal midfielder Matteo Guendouzi as they weigh their spending options as the new project under Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund looks to get off the ground.

Guendouzi has enjoyed a solid on loan spell with Olympique de Marseille this season along with club teammate, William Saliba, and the French U21 international midfielder still is not guaranteed a future at the Emirates under Mikel Arteta.

The former Lorient academy graduate – still just 22-years-old – could certainly build a long-term partnership with former Arsenal midfielder and Hale End product Joe Willick under Howe in what could be a credible midfield duo for the club to structure a rebuild around.
