Wise Out?

Last updated : 28 January 2008 By Kevin Markey
The breaking news on Monday is that Wise will become part of Kevin Keegan's backroom team at Newcastle United.

The 41-year-old is wanted in a director of football role rather than as assistant manager to Keegan, who returned to St James' Park earlier in the month.

The role, similar to what Frank Arnesen has at Chelsea, would see Wise overseeing transfers and youth team development at Newcastle.
