Newcastle have given Crystal Palace permission to speak to manager Alan Pardew over the vacancy at Selhurst Park.
The Magpies confirmed late on Monday night that the Eagles had made a formal approach for the 53-year-old, who has been in charge at St James’ Park since December 2010, as they look for a replacement for Neil Warnock.
A statement read: “Newcastle United can confirm that Crystal Palace have made a formal approach requesting permission to speak to Alan Pardew in relation to their vacant managerial position. Crystal Palace have offered compensation at a level whereby Alan has now been permitted to speak to them.
“As a result of this development today, Alan will not be at training on Tuesday. Training will be the responsibility of assistant manager John Carver. The club will make a further announcement in due course.”
