Newcastle United have brought in John Carver to be assistant manager to Alan Pardew.
46 year old Carver, who was employed for the same role under the late Sir Bobby Robson, has signed on for the remainder of the season.
Carver has previously worked at Leeds, Luton, Plymouth, Sheffield United and MLS side Toronto, as well as the post at Newcastle.
Pardew backs the signing saying, “I’m delighted to be bringing John on board. He has an excellent track record as a coach and of course knows this club very well.”
Carver said: “I am proud and honoured to be able to come back once again to my home-town club.
“It’s an amazing feeling (to be back) and it’s quite hard to put into words. Driving though the main entrance this morning was one of the nicest feelings ever because when I left here, it was really disappointing.
“It was the most disappointing thing I’ve experienced, even more so than having to finish playing with an early injury. That was disappointing but leaving the football club in the position we were in at the time we left was the most disappointing feeling I’ve ever known.
“But having said that, it’s reversed it now because I’ve came through the gates again as Assistant Manager and I’m looking forward to this huge challenge.”
