Shearer to learn today if he will get Newcastle backing

Alan Shearer expects to learn today if he will be made permanent manager of Newcastle United.

The Daily Mail says Toon owner Mike Ashley has been in negotiations with banks all week to see if he can get the short-term cash injection needed to install Shearer, who is in limbo until he hears.

Last night there were no signals as to which way things were going and there could be another delay that takes the situation into next week.

But if Ashley brings bad news from the banks then he will be unable to appoint Shearer.
