Eddie Howe has signed a new long-term contract with Newcastle United ahead of the new Premier League season.
The Englishman has done a tremendous job since taking over the Magpies in November 2021, replacing Steve Bruce shortly after the takeover of the Tyneside club.
Newcastle were stuck in a relegation battle when Howe found them and after some impressive signings and coaching the 44-year-old steered the club to an 11th placed finish.
Newcastle’s new owners are clearly happy with the job Howe is doing and the Englishman is now being tasked with taking the Magpies to the next level and helping them climb the Premier League table.
