Ashley assures Newcastle boss Pardew job safe

Alan Pardew has been assured he will be Newcastle United manager next season.

Alan Pardew has been assured he will be Newcastle United manager next season.

The Evening Chronicle says Pardew is understood to have been assured of his future with Newcastle United next season.

It is thought that Pardew will still face an already scheduled end-of-season review.

However, despite some candid comments about the possibility of being shown the door in the build-up to yesterday’s narrow win at QPR, sealing survival appears to have eased the pressure.

Owner Mike Ashley was at Loftus Road for the 2-1 victory but will meet up with Pardew and managing director Derek Llambias after next weekend’s final game with Arsenal.
