London - Newcastle United showed their faith in manager Alan Pardew on Thursday by extending his contract in charge until 2020.

The north-east club also extended the deals of Pardew's three assistants, John Carver, Steve Stone and Andy Woodman, keeping them there until the end of the 2019-20 season.

It is an unprecedented step by a club which has been through eight managers in the past eight years.

In a statement on the club's website, Newcastle said it had awarded the contracts "to ensure it has the stability necessary to achieve consistent success in the Premier League and European club competition".

Pardew took over at Newcastle in December 2010 and last year, led them to fifth place in his first full season in charge.

"If you look at clubs like Manchester United and Arsenal, Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger have shown that stability gives you the best platform to achieve success, and that is the model we wish to emulate here," Newcastle's managing director Derek Llambias said.

"We're looking to build on the success we had last season and these new contracts are aimed at keeping the Club progressing on and off the pitch, as we have done since returning to the Premier League in 2010.

"Alan has done a fantastic job over the last couple of years and has proved what a great Premier League manager he is. I have total respect for him in all football matters and have an excellent relationship with him which I think benefits the club enormously.
