Peter Beardsley was suspended earlier this year after there were accusations of bullying and discrimination made against him by Yasin Ben El-Mhanni
After an initial look into the case by Newcastle Beardsley was placed on gardening leave.
In May an independent appeal body found that he had used discriminatory language and conducted himself in a generally unfair manner towards El-Mhanni.
Newcastle then launched an independent investigation with Lee Charnley in charge and he is the one who will make a decision on what happens to Beardsley.
Yasin Ben El-Mhanni was also told that his contract would not be renewed when it ran out on June 30th and he is now a free agent.
Now that the transfer window is practically over there is no reason why Charnley cannot wrap this thing up, make his decision and announce it.
Peter Beardsley – former U-23 manager
The Mail has reported the Gibson family two years complained of the treatment of their son Lewis by Beardsley – but the U-23 manager refused to admit he had done anything wrong.
Then last summer Lewis Gibson, one of our very best young players wanted to leave his hometown club and he eventually signed on at Everton and since then he has done extremely well on Merseyside.
Everton paid £1M initially for Gibson and the fee could rise to as much as £6M – but the better solution was to keep the local lad at Newcastle.
The U23 squad has not produced players for the first team over the time Mike Ashley has been the owner, and that is something that Rafa wants to change.
Lee Charley has to make a decision on Beardsley – as tough as it may be – and soon.
That’s what executives are paid to do.
