Cape Town - Ajax head coach Frank de Boer has expressed an interest in filling the managerial vacancy at Newcastle, but only after the season has concluded, reports Football411.

The Magpies are searching for a permanent successor to Alan Pardew, who took the Crystal Palace job earlier this month, with John Carver placed in a caretaker role.

De Boer has been linked with the Magpies post and previously Liverpool, after his impressive work at the Amsterdam Arena, where he has won four successive league titles.

The former Netherlands international has admitted he would consider an offer from the Tynesiders, but has no plans to walk out on his current employers before the campaign is over.

"I have everything open. But I will be ready that's for sure," the 44-year-old is quoted as saying by The Guardian.

"I only said if they asked I don't go now because I am with Ajax and I don't want to go halfway through a season while also stepping into a team that are already halfway too.

"So, for me, if there will be a chance it is always in the new season."
