Former Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe has been appointed as the new manager for Newcastle United after Steve Bruce’s departure, know his salary and contract details
Newcastle United have assigned the role of head coach to former Bournemouth gaffer Eddie Howe until 2024, after the exit of Steve Bruce. Bruce was prepared to leave the Premier League club as soon as the Saudi-led consortium took over the club last month. Howe will now travel up to Tyneside to seal his contract deal with the Magpies.
Newcastle United Seal Services Of Eddie Howe As The New Manager
Upon his arrival, Howe will have some work to do as he will look to revamp the squad and usher in a new era at Newcastle, with the start of the Saudi revolution. Since the Magpies are placed in the bottom three without a win in the Premier League this season, it is now Howe’s job to take full accountability and responsibility for the changes he brings in the structure of the club’s squad.
The club announced, “Newcastle United are delighted to confirm the appointment of Eddie Howe as the club’s new head coach on a contract until the summer of 2024.” The 43-year old Englishman has been out of work since he left Bournemouth in August 2020, after the club was relegated from the Premier League on the last day of the season.
Up until now, Graeme Jones had been the interim manager for the Magpies for their last three games post Bruce’s exit and the takeover of the club by a consortium, led by businesswoman Amanda Straveley, and 80% led by Saudi Arabia’s PIF (Public Investment Fund) independent wealth fund.
Newcastle United Preparing Contract For Eddie Howe
Highly reputed and trusted journalist Fabrizio Romano has said that Newcastle are in the midst of working out the final bits of a contract that will keep Howe at St. James Park till 2024. As per reports, there could be a break clause in the deal if the Tyneside club are relegated next year in May. Newcastle are 19th in the Premier League standings currently.
Eddie Howe Salary At Bournemouth
On his contract with Bournemouth, Howe earned 750,000 UK pounds annually which was said to have been bumped up to 3 million pounds a year. He should be given credit for guiding the club to stay in the Premier League after their promotion.
Since the Saudi-led consortium is backed by exceedingly wealthy individuals like the crown prince of Saudi Arabia, Mohammad Bin Salman Al Saud himself, Howe’s salary at Newcastle will surely tower over his earnings at Bournemouth.
