Newcastle United has appointed Eddie Howe as head coach until 2024 following the exit of Steve Bruce last month. 

Eddie Howe has been away from management since he left Bournemouth in August 2020. Followed by relegation from the Premier League on the final day of the season.

His first job will be to secure a safe place for Newcastle United as the Magpies have failed to register a single win after 11 matches. However, having a wealthy owner they still can't sign a player till January. So now he has to recover the team's position in the squad he has.

"This is a wonderful opportunity, but there is also a lot of work ahead of us and I am eager to get onto the training ground to start working with the players."

Following the dismissal of Steve Bruce, Newcastle United appointed Graeme Jones as their interim manager for 3 matches. Following a takeover of the club by Saudi-led owners.
