Toon Pick Pardew; Newcastle Want New Boss in by Weekend


Byline: COLIN YOUNG and JOHN EDWARDS

ALAN PARDEW is expected to be named Newcastle manager by the weekend after owner Mike Ashley moved quickly to replace the sacked Chris Hughton.

Former West Ham and Charlton boss Pardew is the No 1 choice of Ashley and managing director Derek Llambias, who fired Hughton on Monday despite him guiding Newcastle back to the Barclays Premier League and leading them into 12th place.

The Newcastle board have sounded out other candidates, including former Tottenham manager Martin Jol who left his post with Ajax on Monday. Glenn Hoddle's odds to take the job came in dramatically last night as rumours mounted that a third man was in the running for the position. But Pardew remains the preferred option to succeed Hughton, who said his farewells to Newcastle's stunned players at the club's training ground yesterday.

Hughton, who had been given no indication by his employers that he faced the axe, collected his belongings and packed them into a cardboard box after seeing the squad, who then trained with caretaker manager Peter Beardsley at St James' Park.

The training ground pitches were frozen, forcing interim boss Beardsley to move his first session to the stadium.

Jol and his advisers have told Newcastle he wants a rest from football after a difficult spell with Holland's four-time European champions. His reign came to an end just hours after Hughton's departure from St James' Park, but this seems to have been a coincidence.

Although the Dutchman is keen for a return to the Premier League -- he nearly accepted an offer from Fulham in the summer -- and would jump at the chance to manage a club of Newcastle's stature, he is uncomfortable about stepping into the shoes of his close friend Hughton, who was his assistant at White Hart Lane.

Jol is being linked with his former club Hamburg but would rather not return to management until well into next year.

Newcastle are hoping to finalise a deal for Pardew to take over on Tyneside in time for the Saturday evening game at home to Liverpool.

The Wimbledon-born 49-year-old, who is out of work following his sacking by Southampton in August, could be appointed tomorrow. The club's weekly press conference, which would normally be held on Friday, has been cancelled.

Former Newcastle manager Alan Shearer, ruling himself out of a return, yesterday joined the chorus of criticism over the club's treatment of Hughton.

The 40-year-old, who fell out with Ashley as he struggled in vain to keep Newcastle up in 2009, said: 'I wonder where they think Newcastle should be, if they think they should be higher than mid-table, because I'm not being disrespectful to the squad but they're not going to be in the top six or seven. …
