Newcastle tie down chief scout Carr

Newcastle United have tied down their influential chief scout Graham Carr to an eight-year deal that will keep him at the club until he is 75.

Carr has been instrumental in helping Alan Pardew assemble a side on a modest budget that ended the season fifth in the Premier League, exceeding all expectations.

He identified the likes of Hatem Ben Arfa, Papiss Demba Cisse, Chieck Tiote and Yohan Cabaye, who have transformed Newcastle into genuine Champions League contenders in the space of one season.

The former Northampton and Blackpool manager also had spells as a scout with Tottenham and Manchester City but was born in the north east. His shrewd eye for a bargain has helped Pardew redistribute the £35 million the club received for Andy Carroll when he was sold to Liverpool.

Newcastle managing director Derek Llambias said: "We are delighted to have agreed an eight-year deal with Graham, and very pleased that he has committed his long-term future to the club.

"He has been instrumental in helping us to bring some truly exceptional players to Newcastle United and he has deservedly built one of the best reputations in the business.''

Carr joined Newcastle in February 2010, during Chris Hughton's stint as manager, and by tying the 67-year-old down to such a long deal it appears Mike Ashley is planning on a lengthy stint at the club.

Llambias added: "Graham works tirelessly to identify talented young players from across the world and has done a magnificent job over the last two years.

"He has the complete faith and support of the owner, the board and the manager, and it is excellent news that the club will continue to benefit from his expertise for many years to come.''
