Jamaal Lascelles wants to get Newcastle United safe as soon as possible – so contract talks can start with Rafa Benitez.
Benitez – whose contract runs out in the summer – is expected to sit down for discussions over his future when the club secures its Premier League status.
Newcastle are 14th in the Premier League and seven points above the relegation zone ahead of tomorrow’s home game against Crystal Palace.
And Lascelles and his team-mates just want to get the job done.
“We’ll try to do anything we can to seal this manager down to a contract,” said Lascelles, United’s captain.
“If it means us getting the job done and getting as safe as possible, then excellent.
“We’ll just concentrate on our football and let the rest take care of itself.”
