French manager arrives on Tyneside, could agree four-year deal with Newcastle – report

Ex-Lyon boss Bruno Genesio is on Tyneside and could become the new Newcastle United manager, according to Le Progres.

The French newspaper claims that Genesio, 52, might sign a four-year deal with the Magpies to become Rafa Benitez’s successor at St James’ Park after the Spaniard left the North-East club last month.

Genesio is available after he left Lyon at the end of last season.

The Frenchman spent four years in charge of the Ligue 1 giants, who finished third in the league last season.
