Report – More Names Linked With NUFC Director Role


The Independent is claiming that Owen Brown is confident of landing the director of football role at Newcastle United.

According to the report, the former Rafa Benitez advisor would team up with Frank McParland, who has served as the sporting director at Brentford, Burnley, and most recently Nottingham Forest.

Earlier today, Get French Football News claimed that Lille’s director of football Luis Campos turned down an approach from Newcastle United. The Independent echos that claim while adding that Domenico Teti was also approached.


Owen Brown (pictured above with Rafa) spent time as a scout and advisor under Rafa Benitez at Liverpool.

However, we can’t see him being handed the director of football role at Newcastle under our new ownership group. Though he could be in line for another position at the club.

We would expect our new owners to bring in a top director to take this club forward. Someone like Lille’s Luis Campos would be an outstanding hire if he could be persuaded to join.

Earlier this month, former Newcastle defender Nikos Dabizas was again touted as a candidate to become Newcastle’s next director of football.

    How much better will this place be now? Back to the good days of discussing football, we can all stop being part time accountants.

    We are almost there but I more than welcome the debates on football and not off field nonsense

    I couldn’t care less who came in to be fair. I just want that explosion of emotion with the announcement then the dreaming will begin.

    I am really excited to hear what the new owners plans are, what the vision is for the future and really looking forward to having a club who communicates with the fans.

    Our Toon, Oh i concur, and in that vein, the first three of our current squad you’d have on the team sheet (in order), for me:-

    1 Dubs
    2 ASM
    3 Miggie

    simon376, it’s not 1982 mate, you can send cash electronically which takes under a minute to transfer (same country), and as PIF actually own a company that does exactly this on a daily basis, it has nothing to do with your local branch being open! Banking is 365/24/7

    Yeah simon376, but as i said, PIF basically own a private bank to be able to complete huge deals immediately, wherever they are in the world.
