John Carver will stay on as Newcastle United manager until the end of the season, the club has announced.

The Magpies have been without a manager since Alan Pardew left to take over at Crystal Palace. Carver was Pardew’s assistant during his tenure, and was named as the club’s caretaker manager following Pardew’s departure.

50 year-old Carver has managed one draw and three defeats since taking temporary charge, and the club has decided to stick with him until the end of the season, before resuming their search for a permanent manager.

Newcastle’s managing director, Lee Charnley, told the club’s website; “At the beginning of this process it was my desire and intention to appoint an individual to the position of head coach who would be available to start immediately.

“Having now explored at some length the options available to us at this time, the decision has been taken to defer the appointment of a permanent head coach until the end of the season.

“The head coach will be a long-term appointment that will play a major role in shaping the future on-field progression of Newcastle United and it is vitally important that we get the right individual.

“John has a long history with the Club and has the full support of the board. Our goal for the season of a minimum top ten finish remains unchanged and we are confident that John, supported by the backroom staff, will be able to deliver this.”
