Carver looks to future after Newcastle stay up

Newcastle United boss John Carver says it will be 'big summer' for the club after the Magpies clinched Premier League survival on the final day of the season.

Second-half goals from Moussa Sissoko and Jonas Gutierrez gave Newcastle a 2-0 win over West Ham, securing the club's status in the top flight at the expense of Hull City.

Speaking after the match, Carver said it had been an 'emotional' time for all involved at Newcastle.

Newcastle owner Mike Ashley says he will not sell the club until they win a trophy or qualify for the Champions League.

Speaking on Sky Sports Mr Ashley said he was going nowhere and that the club was currently not for sale at any price.

He also said that, if Newcastle are relegated, the responsibility stopped at his door.

Mike Ashley is running Newcastle "from another planet" and should sell the club as soon as possible, according to former Magpies manager Kevin Keegan.

With Newcastle facing a relegation showdown against West Ham on this afternoon, Keegan delivered a passionate attack on Ashley's regime, which was in place when Keegan resigned from his second spell as manager in 2008.

Keegan said he was hoping Newcastle could find a way to survive and then be sold to "someone who cares" who could then map out a way to return excitement and optimism to St James' Park.

"It's not a difficult thing to work out unless you're from another planet," Keegan told BBC Radio 5 Live's Sportsweek programme.

"I think Mike Ashley runs that club from another planet."
