Newcastle United manager Eddie Howe has signed a new long-term contract just nine months after being appointed.
Howe joined the Magpies on a deal which ran until the summer of 2024 when he took over from Steve Bruce in November 2021.
Newcastle were 19th in the Premier League at the time, five points from safety after 11 games, and he guided them to an 11th-place finish.
Howe said it was “a great feeling to commit” his future to the club.
“I’m extremely proud to be the head coach of Newcastle United and have enjoyed every moment here,” he said.
“I’d like to take the opportunity to acknowledge my coaching team, the players, staff and supporters. They make it a very special place to be every day.
“I’d also like to extend my gratitude to our owners and to [sporting director] Dan Ashworth. We are still at the start of our journey, but this is an exciting time to be a part of Newcastle United and I’m very excited about the future together.”
Newcastle open their campaign against newly-promoted Nottingham Forest on Saturday.
