Newcastle are once again in turmoil after revealing manager Rafael Benitez will leave the club when his contract expires on Sunday.

Burnley boss Sean Dyche is set to be ruled out because of the £10m compensation it would cost the Magpies while Rangers' boss Steve Gerrard, though keen for a crack at the Premier League, may see Newcastle as a poisoned chalice considering Benitez' toxic relationship with Ashley.

Arteta is now the bookmakers' favourite having been a major part of Pep Guardiola's backroom staff at Manchester City as the Catalan's assistant, with the former midfielder having been linked with the Arsenal job last summer before Unai Emery was appointed.

His reputation was tarnished somewhat towards the end of his reign, with a previously faultless record when it comes to top-four finishes seeing Arsenal miss out on Champions League football.

After three seasons there, the former Arsenal, Manchester City, Inter Milan and Juventus midfielder moved to Nice. Newcastle are a totally different scenario for him. "Any manager that comes in has a solid platform to go and showcase Newcastle United". That's why Rafa's left.

He could also seek advice from his former manager, Arsene Wenger - also mentioned in the Newcastle manager conversation, before seeming to distance himself from it - on how to succeed, and the pitfalls to avoid.

Asked if he was close to a return, Wenger, 69, said: "Not in the near future, no". I still am not ready to go back. "I worked for 35 years without any interruptions, so I think I deserved a little rest".

"I'm more open now than a year ago to talk about that but I can not tell you that in the next two or three days I will go into management again".
