Supporters of the north east club have been calling for Pardew’s head following the dismal second half of the season which saw them lose 14 of their last 20 Premier League fixtures.

A fan consensus reportedly wanted Pardew out of the St James’ Park managerial seat but the club’s board was quick to diffuse that notion.

“In addressing the documents, the board stated that Alan Pardew will remain the club’s manager,” the minutes of the fan forum read, pertaining to a document collated by forum members.

“The board stated that incorrect media reports which claimed Newcastle had contacted other individuals about the manager position were in the hands of the club’s legal team.”

The minutes continued: “The board accepted that the second half of the season had been disappointing but underlined its aim of improving on a 16th-place finish in 2012/13 with a top 10 finish had been realised.

“It was stated that the club’s aims for the 2014/15 Premier League season would be made public once they had been determined.”
