JFK: Season stay confirmed

JFK: Season stay confirmed

As promised, Joe Kinnear has revealed his long term plans following the Chelsea game. It was widely expected he`d be given a deal until the end of the season and that was confirmed today when he was left in charge until the end of the season. The man himself was moved to comment:

'Ever since I came to Newcastle, I have thoroughly enjoyed the experience. At the moment, the plan is that I identify the players I want and then that will go back to the chairman, and then I assume he will give Dennis the order to go and get them.

But they are strictly my players. I identify them, it goes to the board, they will back it, hopefully finances will be made available and then Dennis will be given the task to go and negotiate and get the job done. I have told the owner where I think we need to strengthen and if we can get the players I am looking for, he has promised me that he will back me up.

We have a big challenge ahead of us for the rest of the season, but together, I'm confident we will make good progress. We have some very good players already at this club and hopefully we can further strengthen the squad in January, and I will be working very closely with the directors to try to achieve that.'
