Newcastle United are reportedly in no rush to find a new figure to replace Joe Kinnear as director of football.
The Magpies announced yesterday that the 67-year-old has resigned from his position having spent less than seven months in the role.
The Premier League outfit did not provide a reason behind the departure of Kinnear, who received a mixed reaction from Newcastle fans following his appointment.
According to PA, club owner Mike Ashley has no immediate plan to call on a replacement this season at St James' Park.
Kinnear failed to secure a permanent signing during both the summer and the winter transfer windows while at Newcastle.
