Sky Sports’ Keith Downie has confirmed that talks between Rafa Benitez and Mike Ashley have ‘carried over’ into today – stating that dialogue between the two is expected to ‘continue over the next 48 hours’.

It’s not quite the news we wanted to hear, but does at least provide an ‘update’ on the current state of play and timeframe of talks.

This comes after widespread reports yesterday confirmed that the pair had met yesterday in a ‘secret location’ in London to discuss the terms of a potential new contract.



Here’s what Sky’s North-East reporter Keith Downie has had to say about Rafa’s meeting with the NUFC hierarchy this lunchtime: It was stated that an ‘announcement’ would take place over the weekend if an agreement was reached, so the fact these talks are expected to continue over the next 48 hours suggest there’s work to be done yet.

The key sticking points will no doubt be over the club’s ambition in the transfer market and Rafa Benitez’s freedom to sign who he sees fit – with one shining example being a £16.5m deal for 29-year-old Salomon Rondon.
