Newcastle have confirmed manager Alan Pardew has been released from his contract to take over at Crystal Palace.

Football’s worst-kept secret was finally made public on Saturday morning, two days after the 53-year-old, who spent more than four years on Tyneside, sat in the stands and watched his Palace team draw 0-0 at Aston Villa.

A statement said: “Newcastle United can confirm that Alan Pardew has been released from his contract in order to be installed as the new manager of Crystal Palace.

“John Carver and Steve Stone will be in the dug-out for at least today’s fixture, the club’s FA Cup third round fixture at Leicester City. The search for a head coach has begun and an announcement will follow in due course.”
