Speaking at the time, Charnley said: “To have been at Newcastle United for 22 years has been an honour and a privilege, and the club, its people and our city will always be very special to me. As it enters a new chapter in its history under new owners, I wish Amanda (Staveley, United co-owner), the rest of the board and everyone connected with the club every success."

The Daily Telegraph report that Charnley will join newly-promoted Forest, beaten 2-0 at St James’s Park on Saturday, on a “consultancy basis”.

Charnley, it’s reported, will not be involved in player trading. Instead, he will focus on the regulations that now apply to the City Ground, including “including ticketing and other matchday requirements”.
