Newcastle maintain Shearer talks over manager job

The Evening Chronicle says Allardyce's job is in no immediate danger, but club owner Mike Ashley and chairman Chris Mort want Shearer to eventually take over.

Big Sam is 53 and he has always said that he intends to retire when he is 55, which would coincide with Shearer's contract with BBC's Match of the Day coming to an end.
