Premiership: Newcastle duo take change as Pardew set to leave

John Carver and Steve Stone are set to be in charge for Newcastle’s next two matches with Alan Pardew poised to become Crystal Palace’s new manager.

The two clubs have agreed compensation for Pardew to succeed Neil Warnock, who was sacked on Saturday.

Pardew did not take training on Tuesday and assistant manager Carver and first team coach Stone have stepped in.

They will oversee Thursday’s Premier League home game against Burnley and Saturday’s FA Cup tie at Leicester.

Pardew is set to leave the Magpies, who are ninth, for 18th-placed Palace.

“Crystal Palace have offered compensation at a level whereby Alan has now been permitted to speak to them,” said a Newcastle statement on Monday night.

Pardew, 53, has been Newcastle manager since December 2010 and is currently the fourth longest-serving manager in English football, after Arsenal’s Arsene Wenger, Exeter City’s Paul Tisdale and Karl Robinson of MK Dons.
