Pardew on his way to Newcastle

Alan Pardew is currently on his way to the north-east to become the next manager of Newcastle United
The Geordies hope to have their new manager in place to take training before Saturday's clash with Liverpool.

Martin Jol's departure from Ajax took Newcastle by surprise and it was not part of the machinations which saw Chris Hughton sacked as boss yesterday afternoon.

Jol is reported in Holland to be a candidate to take over at Hamburg, and said last night that he quit the Dutch giants because he couldn't deliver on the expectations of the club in the circumstances he found himself in

While Pardew has experience of leading West Ham to two cup finals and of three promotions, for many he doesn't fit the bill of the "big name figurehead" that Newcastle want to put in charge.

However Pardew will be spoken to imminently and is said to be confident of being handed a chance at St James's Park
