The former West Ham boss has endured a torrid year, leading his side to only five league wins in 2014 and none in the first six games of the new season.

Newcastle’s loss away at Stoke City appeared to be the final straw, with many of the away fans waving banners calling for Pardew to be sacked.

However, Ashley reportedly has no plans to dispose of the 53 year old and Pardew will be in charge for Saturday’s trip to Swansea City.

Although the controversial chairman refused to comment publicly about his manager’s future, in private he reportedly told a journalist that he would sack Pardew if Newcastle lost to Stoke.

However, he backtracked on those reported comments and insisted anything he said was meant to be a joke.

Pardew’s position at St James’s Park appears to be getting worse with every match and several news outlets have already began predicting his replacement should he be sacked.

Former Manchester United manager David Moyes has been linked with the post while Hull City boss Steve Bruce is also reportedly in the running.
