Newcastle boss Rafael Benitez in talks over future at St James' Park

Rafael Benitez
Rafael Benitez has guided Newcastle to a mid-table finish in the Premier League.

Newcastle boss Rafael Benitez has announced talks over his future at the club are under way.

Benitez, who has a year left on his current deal, gave away little detail about the progress of the discussions at his prematch news conference on Friday.

"We have had conversations and we will have conversations next week," he said. "My representatives are talking with [managing director] Lee Charnley and that's it.''

Benitez joined Newcastle in March 2016 and after a season in the Championship has guided the Magpies to their current standing of 10th in the Premier League this term.

Benitez also joked that there could be a place on Tyneside for departing Barcelona playmaker Andres Iniesta.

He said with a smile: "Has he said to which team he will go or not? Maybe we can prepare something for him right now.''
