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.”
