Shearer seeks assurances from Newcastle owner Ashley

Alan Shearer will seek assurances from Newcastle United owner Mike Ashley before committing himself beyond the end of this season.

The Sun says Shearer has fallen in the love with the manager's job, but wants Joe Kinnear's position clarified before he agrees to take the role full-time.

He also wants assurances from owner Mike Ashley that he will be able to do the job his way, without interference from board level and that he will get funds either to strengthen Newcastle in the Premier League or to bring them back up from the Championship.
