Surely nobody saw this one coming? Kevin Keegan has only just reported that Alan Shearer doesn’t see himself as a Newcastle number two (look how long it took Gordon Brown to get the top job), although the Yorkshire Evening Post have just broken the news that Dennis Wise could be about to team up with the ‘messiah’ at St James’ Park!
The Premiership club are understood to have offered Wise a position within Kevin Keegan’s regime, and sources on Tyneside suggest Newcastle officials are confident of completing a deal subject to agreeing compensation with Leeds.
However, it appears that Wise would become a director of football rather than an assistant manager at this most ‘special’ of clubs. Are Leeds about to lose their manager to a Premier League club after already seeing assistant manager Gus Poyet leave Elland Road to team up with Juande Ramos at White Hart Lane?
