Newcastle United have confirmed that Alan Pardew will stay at St James' Park.

8/1 Newcastle are 8/1 with Paddy Power to be relegated next season
Pardew guided the club to a 10th-placed finish but came under fire from supporters during the latter stages of the season as Newcastle lost eight of their last 10 matches.

In minutes of Monday's Fans' Forum which were posted on the club's official website, Newcastle claimed that they have no intention to sack the 52-year-old this summer.

The minutes read: “The board stated that Alan Pardew will remain the club's manager.

“The board stated that incorrect media reports which claimed Newcastle United had contacted other individuals about the manager position were in the hands of the club's legal team.”

Newcastle fans have also criticised the transfer policy implemented at St James' Park but the club insist Pardew will be able to add to his squad this summer.

“The board confirmed money is available to spend on players but has to ensure the right players are purchased for the right price,” a further statement read.
