Rafa Benitez tops West Ham wanted list

Rafa Benitez tops West Ham wanted list

Now sources close to the club have told me that Moyes is it is "more than likely" that the Scot will be thanked for his efforts but shown the exit door.

But there is fear over Benitez's future at St. James' Park as his relationship with owner Mike Ashley often brought into question. I've heard so much talk, but I haven't spoken to [Napoli chairman] Aurelio de Laurentiis.

However, a takeover bid by Amanda Staveley's PCP Capital Partners broke down in January and although Newcastle are still for sale, it is understood the price-tag has increased with another season of the Premier League's riches secured.

On a less positive note, he added: "On many occasions throughout the season they have been described as a Championship side, which I personally consider to be derogatory". My priority is to stay in England.

With the win Rafael Benitez men finished the season in the first half of the table in 10th place while Chelsea will have to make do with Europa League football as their 70 points haul could only help them to a 5th place finish. I'm only talking to Newcastle right now'. "What I would like is to be sure that the team is able to compete to finish above tenth". However, we can reveal that Sullivan has already decided that he wants a new boss at West Ham and has informed the Scot - who was only handed a short-term deal to the end of the season - his contract won't be renewed. That is the way to improve things.

The statement was read out on Match of the Day on Sunday night but Shearer wasn't having a word of it and mocked Ashley for just continuing to pay lip service to supporters without any intention of backing it up with transfer funds.

"Rafa, as always, has my full support, and contrary to some media reports that portray me as a pantomime villain, I will continue to ensure that every penny generated by the club is available to him".

"I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone at Newcastle United", said Kenedy.
