Newcastle United can confirm that a meeting has taken place between the club’s owner, Mike Ashley, managing director, Lee Charnley, and manager, Rafa Benítez.

It was agreed by all parties that the meeting was very positive and constructive.

Mike again congratulated Rafa and his team on gaining promotion to the Premier League as champions.

Plans for next season were discussed, including the purchase and loan of players to add to the squad in readiness for the Premier League season.

Speaking after the meeting, Mike Ashley said: “I’ve confirmed to Rafa and Lee that they can have every last penny that the club generates through promotion, player sales and other means in order to build for next season.”

Manager Rafa Benítez added: “I’m pleased with how the meeting went and the positive approach we are all taking together to build on what we have started this season.

“There will be challenges ahead of course, the summer will not be easy, but the hard work has been going on for some time and we can now continue positively with the development of the squad ahead of the start of the new season.

“I wish fans an enjoyable summer!”

    Great stuff! Onward and upward then – ahead full! Let’s hope that the monetary ‘other means’ can include: match day revenue; tickets and concessions, ground and shirt sponsorship, merchandising etc. Let’s see the acumen our Club’s business team have off-the-field in developing these streams and in tapping what we know is out there and which is currently under valued: corporate, non-match day, ground utilisation etc., demonstrating the determination and passion shown by the playing staff and it would seem by Mr Ashley. Let’s see them be allowed to build. Mighty oaks and all that…
