Kinnear leaves his job at Newcastle

Joe Kinnear has left his job at Newcastle United as director of football.

The former Magpies manager has stepped down from his post just days after the club sold star midfielder Yohan Cabaye and failed to replace him before Friday's transfer deadline.

A club statement issued on Monday night said: "Newcastle United can confirm that Joe Kinnear has this evening resigned from his position as Director of Football with immediate effect.

"The club will be making no further comment."
