Pardew convinced Harper to stay with Newcastle

Steve Harper says he's staying with Newcastle United this season.

Harper, 37, was ready to move on this summer.

But he revealed to the Evening Chronicle: "On the first morning we came in, even before training, I had a good, positive chat with the manager, which was probably what I needed.

"It was a very good piece of man-management on the first morning.

"We had a good chat, and I have the bit between my teeth again."
