Dowie none the wiser over Shearer's future

Newcastle United assistant manager Iain Dowie insists there is nothing new to report in relation to Alan Shearer's future at the club beyond Sunday's crucial Premier League clash at Aston Villa.

Newspaper reports on Thursday suggested Shearer was set to commit his future to the club, regardless of the result at Villa Park and what that means for the club's Premier League status; and that's despite the club having won just one match, at home to Middlesbrough, since he took over caretaker reins from Chris Hughton.

Newcastle must better Hull's result against Manchester United or Sunday, or beat Villa and hope Sunderland do not win at home to Chelsea, to climb out of the bottom three on the final day.

Dowie insists there is nothing in place beyond the current campaign for either himself or Shearer.

"I have said from the first minute we got here that we have taken decisions that are right for the long term of this football club, and maybe that has been perceived as we're staying for the long term, but I don't think that's the case,'' he said.

"Alan came to me and said 'it's an eight-week job'.

"As far as I'm aware, that eight weeks ends on Monday, nothing's changed. Although it will be a matter for Alan to sit down and talk about it if that's what he wants to do.

"But all our focus is on Sunday and keeping the club in the Premier League.''
