Eddie Howe has been affirmed as the new lead trainer of Newcastle on an agreement until summer 2024.

Howe, who has been unemployed since leaving Bournemouth in 2020 after their transfer from the Premier League, replaces Steve Bruce at St James’ Park.


Newcastle had recently contacted previous Arsenal and current Villarreal supervisor Unai Emery about the opportunity, yet he selected to stay with the La Liga side.

“It is a great honour to become head coach of a club with the stature and history of Newcastle United,” said Howe, who will take training at the club for the first time on Tuesday.

“It is a very proud day for me and my family.

“This is a wonderful opportunity, but there is also a lot of work ahead of us and I am eager to get onto the training ground to start working with the players.


“I would like to thank the club’s owners for this opportunity and thank the club’s supporters for the incredible welcome they have already given me. I am very excited to begin our journey together.”

Howe watched from the stands as Newcastle drew 1-1 at Brighton on Saturday, making them the just winless side in the Premier League this season.


Newcastle United co-owner Amanda Staveley said: “We have been unbelievably dazzled by Eddie through what has been a thorough enrollment process.

“As well as his obvious achievements with AFC Bournemouth, where he had a transformational impact, he is a passionate and dynamic coach who has clear ideas about taking this team and club forward.

“He is a great fit for what we are trying to build here. We are delighted to welcome Eddie and his staff to St James’ Park and very much look forward to working together towards our collective ambitions.”

Newcastle said a declaration in first-group instructing arrangements will “continue at the appointed time”.


Howe will have the worldwide break to work with his players who are not on the job with their nations, before advanced side Brentford head for Tyneside for his first test on November 20.

There will be a series of familiar faces in the dressing room – striker Callum Wilson and midfielders Matt Ritchie and Ryan Fraser all worked under him during his time with the Cherries.

“It was the worst-kept secret over the last couple of days due to the fact that we saw Eddie Howe on Saturday night at the Amex Stadium, taking in Brighton vs Newcastle, sat alongside Amanda Staveley.

“There were one or two worries about whether it was going to go through and when it was going to go through. Now it is some 48 hours on, but the Newcastle supporters have got what they wanted – a new man in the dugout. He will have the best part of two weeks to work in players before that first match in charge, which will be at St James’ Park against Brentford.


“It’s the deal we’ve been waiting for since last Wednesday or Thursday when the deal for Unai Emery broke down. Newcastle then turned their attention to the former Bournemouth manager, who has been out of work for 15 months.

“That deal was agreed in principle with him on Thursday and there was one or two slight issues with his backroom staff over the weekend, I believe they’ve been ironed out. We do expect Eddie Howe to fly up to the North East later today and meet the players for the first time tomorrow, then take training with them later in the day.”

Howe’s appearance, following breakdowns in converses with Villarreal supervisor Unai Emery and ex-Roma lead trainer Paulo Fonseca, has not been met with all inclusive praise on Tyneside. His bound last season as Bournemouth supervisor waits as the overall memory for a very remarkable fanbase for whom assignment, in spite of their ebb and flow problem, is incomprehensible.

Howe is additionally a casualty of situation. He didn’t request Newcastle to be connected with Antonio Conte and Zinedine Zidane prior to choosing a man who has overseen just Bournemouth and Burnley, or for the news that he was second or third decision, maybe lower, to turn out to be so freely clear.


Addressing the people who know him best, pressure is something Howe is uncommonly agreeable – and positively comfortable – in managing. At the point when he played his first administrative job, at then League Two Bournemouth, Howe was cautioned by the owner the club would almost certainly fall into liquidation if he didn’t keep them in the division, regardless of battling with a 17-point allowance granted for genuine monetary issues.
