has today concluded that Steve McClaren's employment with the Club will end with immediate effect.

We acknowledge that reaching this decision has taken a number of days and that this has caused uncertainty for everyone involved, in particular for Steve and the players, for which we apologise.  

However we felt that this time was necessary to ensure the right decisions were reached with the best interests of the Club at heart.

Lee Charnley said:

"I would like to thank Steve personally for his services to Newcastle United.  He is a man of integrity and class and he has conducted himself with great dignity during this difficult time. 

"Steve worked tirelessly to try and bring success to Newcastle United.  He has the utmost respect of all the players, staff and management and he leaves with our very best wishes and sincere thanks. 

"We feel that a change is now needed in order to give the Club the best possible chance of securing its Premier League future.

"A further announcement on a successor to Steve will be made in due course."
