Keegan delivers Newcastle ultimatums to Ashley

If he is to stay on, Kevin Keegan wants Dennis Wise axed from Newcastle, it has been revealed.

The Sun says Keegan made a series of ultimatums during talks with Toon owner Mike Ashley yesterday.

KK demanded:

- Executive director of football Wise to be paid off. - Vice-president Tony Jimenez, who is in charge of player recruitment, to also be shown the door. - Control of all transfers in and out - AND given the power to negotiate all player contracts.

A Toon insider said: "The way Keegan is trying to pull this round is staggering.

"If he gets his way, he'll have a power which he hasn't had since coming back."
