The ex-Bournemouth manager is appointed as Newcastle United’s first new-era manager.

Newcastle United

have finally found a new boss by bringing in

Eddie Howe

on a deal that will keep him for two-and-a-half-year.

Graeme Jones has been managing the club temporarily after

Steve Bruce

left the club on mutual consent following the new owners Saudi Arabia's Public Investment Fund that made them the richest owners in the football world.

Brendan Rodgers, Paulo Fonseca, Lucien Favre and Roberto Martinez were also potential candidates for the job before Unai Emery snubbed the Magpies.

On Monday, however, the club announced that the former


manager has been appointed as Bruce’s replacement after watching his new side’s 1-1 draw with Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday.

He has not been working since departing Bournemouth in 2020 after they were relegated to the Championship.

He impressed during his spell at the Cherries, helping them make their way up to the top flight, and has turned down an offer from Celtic before Ange Postecoglou’s arrival.

The 43-year-old has managed 545 games, delivering 228 victories. He won 56 matches in 190 in the Premier League.
