Pardew Looking For Pay Rise
Alan Pardew, who still has three years to run on his existing deal, is looking for improved terms at St James' Park to reflect the success he has had in his first 18 months on Tyneside.
Mike Ashley says he wants stability at the club, after many years of changing managers and coaching staff.
Chief scout Graham Carr was given an eight-year deal this week which takes him beyond his 75th birthday and Pardew wants his prize assets to commit to long-term deals.
That does not necessarily tie them to the club, but it will ensure they retain a good resale value.
The Newcastle boss was named both the Barclays Premier League and the League Managers' Association manager of the year last month.
The Newcastle boss, who arrived on a five-year deal in December 2010, is understood to be hoping for an improved deal - he is currently not among the best paid managers in the division.
