Newcastle United have confirmed that assistant coach Ian Cathro will be leaving the club to become head coach at Scottish Premiership side Hearts.
Cathro arrived at St. James’ Park from Valencia in the summer of 2015.
Newcastle United manager Rafa Benitez said:
I would like to wish Ian the very best success with his first head coach role. When a coach has the opportunity and the desire to progress his career in management, it is always very important to allow them the freedom to move on and develop themselves.
We all send Ian our good luck for his future and thank him for his good work for Newcastle United. We will not be appointing a replacement to Ian in the immediate future. We will take some time now to decide what is best for us, our team, coaching staff and the club."
The Magpies boss says as far as he's concerned Ian Cathro is still his coach, despite reports that Scottish club Hearts want him as managerRead the full story ›

Former Middlesbrough and manager and player Gareth Southgate has been confirmed as England's new manager.
The 46-year-old signed a four-year deal on Wednesday after his nomination as Sam Allardyce's successor was nodded through during an FA board meeting at St George's Park.
Southgate became interim manager in September, stepping up from his role as under-21 boss, winning two and drawing two of his four games in charge and was the only candidate interviewed for the job.
Southgate signed as a player for Middlesbrough in 2001, and was appointed captain for the 2002-2003 season and helped them to win the League Cup in 2004.
He was handed his first managerial role at Middlesbrough in June 2006 after Steve McClaren had left to manage England.
