Charnley, Toward to fill Kinnear 'void' at Newcastle

Lee Charnley is set to step up at Newcastle United following Joe Kinnear's departure as football director.

The Daily Mail says at the moment there are no plans to find a replacement for Kinnear who signed a three-year £60,000-a-month contract as director of football in July but has failed to bring in a single permanent signing since.

Charnley and long-serving football operations director Tony Toward will take care of the day-to-day running of the club - a task they effectively did without the influence of Kinnear, who spent very little time in the North East.
