Peter Beardsley has left Newcastle saying he is seeking a new challenge but the club have not clarified whether the under-23s coach’s departure was linked to its investigation into allegations of bullying, which the 58-year-old former Magpies forward has consistently denied.
A statement read: “Newcastle can confirm that Peter Beardsley is no longer employed by the club. We are grateful for the contribution Peter has given over the years as a player, coach and ambassador and we wish him well for the future. The club will make no further comment at this time.”
