Eddie Howe’s Salary & Newcastle Contract: How Much Does The Magpies Boss Earn?

Newcastle betting tips

Making real history last season as they secured a Champions League return for the first time since 2004, Newcastle have their sights set on mounting another top-four charge this time around.

Enjoying what has been a stunning rise under Eddie Howe, the former Bournemouth boss finds his managerial reputation at a red-hot high and has even been billed as a future England manager.

Looking to guide Newcastle to a first major trophy since their FA Cup success way back in 1955, we have taken an in-depth look at Howe’s salary and his current contract at St. James’ Park.


How did Howe end up at Newcastle originally?

At the heart of a crisis following Steve Bruce’s departure from St. James’ Park back in October 2021, Newcastle fans made it abundantly clear that they were seeking a new manager who had a far more positive mindset.

While Newcastle might have been linked with the likes of current Aston Villa boss Unai Emery prior to Howe’s arrival two years ago, the English tactician has certainly guided Newcastle on a real fairytale story.

Not immediately jumping into another Premier League position after being given the boot by Bournemouth in August 2020 following the Cherries’ top-flight relegation, the 45-year-old eventually joined the Magpies as a free agent.

Although it might have appeared that Howe was on his way to Scottish icons Celtic before arriving at St. James’, Newcastle fans will wonder how things would have panned out if Howe had made the move to Glasgow.


What is Howe’s salary and how long is his current deal at St. James’ Park?

Originally coming through the doors at St. James’ Park and signing up for a two-and-a-half year deal, Howe also received a significant pay rise from his tenure at Bournemouth.

With his initial contract at Newcastle seeing Howe’s salary stand at £3million each season, that was reportedly quadruple what the 45-year-old received during his eight-year stay on the south coast.

Guiding Newcastle to a first top-four finish since 2004, it was no surprise that Howe was handed a bumper contract extension by the Premier League high-flyers last year.

Putting pen to paper on a new long-term deal just nine months after being appointed, Howe reportedly now ranks among the Premier League’s best paid bosses.


Could Howe replace Gareth Southgate as England manager?

Guiding Newcastle to a famous Champions League adventure this season, there is no doubt that Howe has been at the heart of Newcastle’s remarkable rise over the past couple of years.

Firing on all cylinders since the Magpies’ Saudi-backed takeover was confirmed back in October 2021, Howe has quickly gained a reputation as one of the Premier League’s hottest managers.

With it appearing that there is mounting pressure on Gareth Southgate’s shoulders heading into EURO 24, Howe finds himself tipped as one of the leading candidates to be the next England boss.
