Fabrizio Romano reports that the director whom Newcastle had previously considered as a replacement for Dan Ashworth is on the verge of making a significant move.Newcastle United has not yet taken any action to appoint a new sporting director following the departure of Dan Ashworth. However, it appears that one potential candidate is no longer being considered. Several individuals have been associated with the director role at Newcastle, including former Liverpool executive Michael Edwards, however no actual appointment took place. Contrary to prior reports suggesting that Edwards had no intention of returning to a football club, Fabrizio Romano now asserts that Edwards is on the verge of rejoining Liverpool. Newcastle fails to secure a replacement for Ashworth. Newcastle suffered a significant setback when Ashworth revealed his departure from the club to take up a position at Manchester United, little under two years after joining from Brighton. There were expectations that Ashworth would remain at Newcastle for an extended period to facilitate their transition into a prominent European club before pursuing his next endeavor. However, this did not materialize. Thanks to Amanda Staveley’s discussions, Newcastle is now requesting £20m from Manchester United to finalize the move. Otherwise, the player will be placed on gardening leave for a further 20 months. Newcastle had anticipated that Edwards may consider returning to a football club as a director, given that he had recently established his own company. However, this possibility seemed unlikely. Currently, it appears like Edwards is poised to return to his previous club, which happens to be a major competitor of Newcastle in the Premier League. This is a significant development for them, especially considering that Jurgen Klopp will be departing at the conclusion of the season.
