Laurent Blanc is keen on the Newcastle job

Giovanni van Bronckhorst's agent has confirmed his client is interested in the vacant Newcastle job.

However, the Spaniard does not know if he can agree a deal with any club before the expiry of his Newcastle contract on Sunday as he could still be liable to pay a £6m penalty to the Magpies.

And Sportsmail understands that Manchester City assistant coach Arteta's name has figured during early discussions, while sources have also touted Burnley boss Dyche as a target. "But I think every coach in the world would be interested in working in the Premier League", Albers said.

Benitez's contract does not expire until the end of the week, but the club announced on Monday that the Spaniard would not be continuing his Magpies tenure into a fourth full season, and will rather leave St James' Park when the month is up. "It is an unbelievable club with an fantastic fanbase but it's up to them who they decide to go for". "He had a great relationship with the fans, the players, the media and the city and he's ready for the next challenge".

Warren Gatland set to become Chiefs head coach in Super Rugby
Warren Gatland will reportedly replace Colin Cooper as Chiefs coach with a break to lead the British and Irish Lions in 2021. Returning to the New Zealand system could also put Gatland firmly in the frame to eventually take charge of the All Blacks .

Van Bronckhorst leaves Feyenoord after four years in charge, in which he helped the Eredivisie side win their first league title in 18 years.

The 25-year-old was the club's top scorer across all competitions last season, finding the net 13 times in 41 appearances, with 10 of his 12 league goals coming in the second half of the season. He also won the KNVB cup on a shoestring budget.

Prior to that Van Bronckhorst had a successful playing career, winning 14 major honours at Feyenoord, Rangers, Arsenal and Barcelona.
