The former Magpies manager has stepped down just days after the club sold midfielder Yohan Cabaye to Paris Saint-Germain and failed to replace him before Friday's transfer deadline.

A club statement said: "Newcastle United can confirm that Joe Kinnear has this evening resigned from his position as Director of Football with immediate effect.

"The club will be making no further comment."
