Ortega arrives in Newcastle
Mike Ashley today has stepped down as Newcastle United chairman selling the club for a reported ?120 million. New owner, Spanish billionaire Amancio Ortega has already said that he wants to bring Newcastle back to the premiership with "Top class players". Ortega's first job at Newcastle is to find a new manager as he has already sacked manager Chris Hughton, in a controversial move that has proven to be unpopular with many fans of the club. The media is buzzing with the prospect of big names promised. Ortega has promised the next manager will have the funds to sign top class talent. Alan Shearer is being touted as the bookies favorite to take charge of his boy hood team but no word from either side as of yet. The only thing we know, this is exciting times for Newcastle fans. Who will be chosen to help Newcastle Rise To The Top.

Hughton leaving Newcastle training ground today
Today Newcastle United have parted ways with manager Chris Hughton after just 2 months in charge. Speculation regarding Hughton's future had been rife since the start of the season after the club's recent takeover, with the new owner looking to appoint someone who can take Newcastle to the next level. The team currently in the Championship having been relegated from the division under Alan Shearer in May 2009. Hughton took over from the former club captain and slowly became a popular figure among the players and supporters at St James' Park.
"Newcastle United Football Club have today parted company with manager Chris Hughton" read a statement on the club's website. "The board would like to place on record their thanks to Chris for his considerable efforts at the club. Chris has shown exceptional character and commitment since being appointed manager. Newcastle will be looking to bring in a new manager as quickly as they can with the start of the season less than a month away and they will be looking to bounce straight back into the Premier League. Here are the bookies favorites to be named next Newcastle Manager:

Michael Laudrup
- 3/1
Lee Clark - 4/1
Tony Pulis 16/1
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer - 33/1

Newcastle youth coach takes full time job
Newcastle have appointed youth coach Terry Overton as full time boss after an extremely long 6 hour meeting with new owner Amancio Ortega. Overton will take full charge of Newcastle starting today with a reported ?60,000,000 transfer budget. Overton, 38 has has spells at Gateshead and Hartlepool before joining Newcastle, although he has only played at Sunday Leauge level Overton has said that he feels he has the passion to take Newcastle back to the Premier League first time around. Overton has also stated on the NUFC official website that he is only looking to sign "World class players" and is looking to build a team of his own. Newcastle fans don't really seem to be happy with the appointment of Overton due to his lack of experience. Only time will tell if Overton can take Newcastle back to the top.

Michael Owen arrives in Newcastle today
Newcastle United boss Terry Overton has pulled off one of the most shocking transfers today by resigning Michael Owen on loan from Manchester United. Owen, 29 has only signed for Sir Alex Ferguson's team on a free transfer a week ago after his contract at Newcastle expired. Although Newcastle fans are not happy with Owen because of his attitude towards the club during his 4 years on Tyneside. Owen cost the club ?16 million back in 2005. But only made 71 appearances for the club. Will Owen win over the Newcastle faithful this time around? ...... Only time will tell.

Cabaye on his way to meet new team mates.
Terry Overton has made Lille's Yohan Cabaye his second signing of the summer, after agreeing a five-year deal for the midfielder. He is a fan favorite at Lille but told his team-mates before their final game of the season that he was bound for Tyneside. The transfer fee is reported to be ?6m. "This is a fantastic move for me," Cabaye said.
"I have enjoyed great times with Lille but the time is right now to test myself against the best and playing for Newcastle United in England does just that". He then added "My first impressions of the club and the city are that it is a lovely place and the stadium is magnificent." At the press conference Overton stated that "Yohan is such a great player" before adding "Cabaye really is one of those unsung hero player types. He not only wins the ball he also keeps it. He plays short simple accurate passes, and will keep the team ticking over".
