Mike Ashley will be in Newcastle today to attempt to clean up the mess left by his decision to sack Sam Allardyce last week.
And a shock return for Kevin Keegan, 56, was not ruled out by the former Tyneside hero yesterday.
Keegan admitted: "I'm not ruling myself out, in or anything. It's a club I love, everyone knows that."
Ashley is happy to leave caretaker boss Nigel Pearson in place until he finds the right man.
