Carver Kicked Out!

John Carver has left Newcastle as the club prepares to appoint Steve McClaren.

The 50-year-old, who took charge of the final 20 games of last season, 19 of them in the Barclays Premier League, has parted company with the Magpies along with coach Steve Stone.

Former England boss Steve McClaren is the overwhelming favourite to be appointed as Alan Pardew's permanent successor when he returns from holiday later this week.

Carver had hoped to keep the job, but after a dreadful second half of the campaign - during which Newcastle won just three league games and only secured their top-flight status on the final day - his hopes were dashed.
