Interim manager Joe Kinnear is set to discover the future of Newcastle after the game with Chelsea on 22nd November.

Kinnear was brought in to steady the ship following the shock departure of Kevin Keegan at the end of September, and he recorded his first win against West Brom on Monday.

The former Wimbledon and Nottingham Forest boss' future remains uncertain as Magpies owner Mike Ashley continues to look to sell the club.

But Kinnear is keen to do what he is asked at St James' Park and is set for 'D-day' talks with the Newcastle board in three weeks' time.

Honour

"I've always said I would honour what I do," said Kinnear.

"But I know that after the Chelsea match at Stamford Bridge on November 22 it is D-day. After that it will all be revealed.

"It was going to be up to the Chelsea game. Either it will be sold or they've changed their minds. We talk after Chelsea."

Kinnear knows even a good run of form on the pitch could still see him leaving after his short-term contract expires.

Transfer market

He said: "In the short term I will do my best but it might get sold under my feet. We've had Russians and South Africans but nobody has stepped up. But your guess is as good as mine.

"Myself, Mike Ashley, Dennis Wise and Derek Llambias will all sit down and talk."

Kinnear, though, admits he is keen to discover if he is going to be backed in the transfer market, if he is still in charge.

He added: "I have asked if there is a 'game plan' if the club isn't sold. Obviously if I do stay I would like finances."
