Carver To Stay At Newcastle

Newcastle have confirmed John Carver has been appointed head coach for the rest of the season.

The 50-year-old is still searching for his first win since assuming the role in a caretaker capacity in the wake of Alan Pardew's departure. 

Carver will now get a chance to stake a claim for the job on a longer term basis after the Magpies' hopes of a quick appointment were met with frustration. 

Carver, who had made no secret of his desire to be appointed on a permanent basis, said: ''This is a proud day for me. ''I have worked with, and learnt from, the best manager that this football club has had in Sir Bobby Robson. 

I know what this club means to this city and its people. I believe in my players and the staff I have around me. ''I am confident that we can deliver exciting successful football and look forward with relish to my role as head coach of this great football club.''
