NEWCASTLE are close to appointing manager Eddie Howe’s nephew Andy as a chief player recruiter.
Howe revealed his exit from Championship promotion hopefuls Bournemouth with a social media message.
Er sagte: “After an amazing 10 years within Bournemouth’s recruitment department, I’ve decided it’s time for my next challenge.
“As a Bournemouth lad, and a Bournemouth supporter this club has been a part of my life from the very beginning and will always hold a special place in my heart.
“Das 10 years have flown by but what a 10 years it has been!!
“The journey has been incredible and like everyone else I’m proud to have played a part in that journey.
“I want to thank everyone within the football club from past to present but more importantly to wish the club continued success.”
Howe’s appointment won’t help third-bottom Newcastle much in their anxious search for January reinforcements
