Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew plans to seek counsel from supporters during the summer after an inconsistent campaign at St James' Park.

Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew has revealed that he is considering setting up a fans' forum this summer to discuss a mixed campaign at St James' Park.

The Magpies sit 16th in the Premier League and are closing in on safety following their Europa League exit at the quarter-final stage earlier this month.

Pardew believes that fans are still reeling from the crushing 3-0 defeat to Sunderland two weeks ago and has insisted that he will involve supporters in his summer examination of the campaign.

He told the Daily Star: "I know where we are and have no problem talking about this season, I think we can set something up.

"I think that emotions are running high and probably will be until the next home game.

"We are just looking to get rid of the frustration and I've told the players that."

Newcastle are six points clear of the relegation zone following a 1-1 draw with West Bromwich Albion last weekend.
