Newcastle seek outside help to find new director of football

Newcastle United have sought outside help to find a new director of football.

The Daily Mail says London-based sports experts Nolan Partners are leading the process, which could take at least two months and is seen as integral to the future direction of the Saudi-owned club.

In the meantime, Amanda Staveley and the board will appoint a short-term football recruitment advisor.

The role will not have the same significance as the director of football position and is seen as a temporary measure to aid with January transfer dealings.

Current head of recruitment Steve Nickson has been co-ordinating that search and there was a meeting last week where names were discussed.
