Newcastle Have Matched Last Season's Premier League Standings

Newcastle Have Matched Last Season's Premier League Standings”

He's previously said he's waiting on Newcastle to see if he will come to an agreement on a new contract.

Rafael Benitez has provided an injury update on Miguel Almiron, while Fabian Schar was also forced to limp off during Newcastle's 3-1 win over Southampton on Saturday.

Benitez does not think Gayle has the touch and power to score consistently at Premier League level and wants to use Fulham's interest in the centre-forward as leverage in their Cairney pursuit.

Speaking after the match, as quoted by ChronicleLive, Benitez confessed that the Paraguayan might not return before the end of the season, cutting short the 25-year-old's campaign after an impressive start to life in the Premier League. With their status in the top flight nearly safe, Newcastle are keen to focus on next season in the hope that they will find themselves well away from the drop zone.

As mentioned, the former Liverpool boss has repeatedly stated his intention is to remain in England due to family reasons.

This was a day when the reminder of the desire from those supporters for Benitez to stay was all around.

"That will be the time when we have to sit down and decide".

"I never lose hope of being called up, it is always at the back of my mind but I just have to keep doing my job in order to give Luis Enrique a selection headache", he said.

And Benitez was again quizzed over his future.

"But when you analyse the transfer fees and wage bills of other teams, we're not competing".

"I am the manager until 30 June. When you see the teams between seventh and 15th, we have to compete with them".

United take on Brighton next weekend at the Amex Stadium.
