The Magpies boss is due to start talks with owner Mike Ashley this week about his future at St James’ Park

Newcastle United captain Jamaal Lascelles says he hopes the club can keep current boss Rafa Benitez at St James’ Park.

The Spaniard is holding talks with Newcastle’s owner Mike Ashley about his future at the club this week.

Rumours have been circulating that Benitez is unhappy at the club, and that he feels under-appreciated after his efforts in stabilising Newcastle in the Premier League under a limited transfer budget, but Lascelles is anxious for him to stay on.
