Rafa Benitez is yet to commit to Newcastle United – a week after the club's relegation.

Benitez has held talks with owner Mike Ashley and managing director Lee Charnley on Tyneside over the past few days.

And the 56-year-old, at his family home on Merseyside, is not expected to agree to stay on at St James's Park and manage in the Championship until next week.

We have the latest on the discussions between United and Benitez here.

Benitez, promised control of incoming and outgoing transfers, is identifying potential targets.

The club has been linked with a Premier League outcast who is available for £3m.

Meanwhile, Crystal Palace midfielder Yohan Cabaye has been talking about Saturday's FA Cup final – and his experiences in the competition while at Newcastle.
