Speculation is emerging that Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew has lost the dressing room.

Speculation is emerging that Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew has lost the dressing room.

The Sunday People says the Magpies boss asked his squad for a reaction in training after the 4-0 midweek humiliation against Tottenham but the message fell on deaf ears.

A Toon insider revealed: “It’s clear there is unrest in the dressing room. There is a lack of confidence throughout the club.”

The insider says the sale last month of Yohan Cabaye has left the Newcastle squad deflated.

He said: “Cabaye was our leader and inspiration. Don’t be surprised if other players follow, especially some of our French contingent.”
