Newcastle United have confirmed that head coach Eddie Howe has signed a new long-term contract at St James’ Park.
Howe joined the club in November 2021, shortly after the take-over of the club by the Saudi Investment Group.
Newcastle United was looking for its first win of the season when Eddie Howe took over as head coach and guided the Magpies to 11th place during the 2021/2022 season, keeping them 14 points away from relegation.
The club had an unbeaten run in February and was voted Barclays Manager of the month, which earned him the award for the fourth time in his career.
Eddie Howe told the club website “ It’s a great feeling to commit my future to this incredible club. I’m extremely proud to be the head coach of Newcastle United and have enjoyed every moment here.
“I’d like to take the opportunity to acknowledge my coaching team, the players, staff and supporters. They make it a special place to be every day.

The club’s shareholders announced: “We are excited to have secured Eddie’s long-term future. He is a young, dynamic and ambitious coach who fits Newcastle United well; we look forward to working with him and supporting him as we strive towards achieving long-term success.”
