Kinnear And That Three Year Contract!
He then underwent a triple heart bypass and is now recovering after being fitted with a pacemaker.
Before his heart problem he told SKY TV: "I have been offered a three year deal by Mike Ashley. I haven't signed it yet, but the decision is up to me."
Kinnear told The Sun: "We'll be safe if we win our home games. It looks like a big name could go down but it's in our hands.
"The big decision time will be in the summer. First I need to keep Newcastle up and know I am going to be fit enough for the job going forward."
