Newcastle is poised to make the first significant appointment of the new Saudi-led regime, with Elliott Dickman taking over as coach of the Under-23s after 26 years at northeast rivals Sunderland.

Sportsmail may reveal that the 43-year-old will fill the position that has been vacant since August, when Chris Hogg left to become an assistant manager at MK Dons.

Academy director Steve Harper has led the search and interviewed several candidates, including former Magpies forward Shefki Kuqi.

But it is Dickman who has landed a position that will become an integral part of the club’s future, given the willingness of the new owners to invest in youth development.

Dickman was a highly skilled youth team player at Sunderland, but was forced to retire at age 20 due to a persistent hip problem.

He has risen through the coaching ranks at Wearside and, since 2017, has been in charge of the under-23 team. His departure will come as a shock to Sunderland fans given his longstanding connection to the club.

Meanwhile, Newcastle’s search for a new first-team boss is likely to enter a third week. Paulo Fonseca remains the bookmaker’s favorite after last week’s talks, but sources have suggested that he is not necessarily the favorite.

Lucien Favre, Unai Emery and Roberto Martínez were three names that were still discussed during the weekend.
