The 57 year old’s application will be considered by the St James’ Park side and is in the running to fill the vacant post following Alan Pardew’s departure for Crystal Palace.
Hoddle is currently acting a coach at QPR and his good relationship with Newcastle United’s chief scout Graham Carr could aid his case to take over as Magpies boss.
What could go against his appointment may be the fact that Hoddle hasn’t managed a club side since 2006, when he left Wolves.
Highly rated AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe is another said to be in with a shot at taking the job with Remi Garde, Christophe Galtier and internal candidate John Carver on the club’s short-list of candidates.
