Newcastle United legend Les Ferdinand says that he happy in his directorial role at Queens Park Rangers amid speculation he could be in line for a role at St James’ Park once the takeover is approved.
Ferdinand works alongside Jamie Rueben at QPR and, with the latter involved in the proposed £300m takeover of Newcastle, speculation has been rife that he wants to bring Ferdinand north with him.
It’s said that if that were to happen then it would present Newcastle with a great chance to sign Hoops starlet Eberechi Eze – who is set for a summer move to the Premier League.
Despite all that, Ferdinand says he isn’t going anywhere anytime soon – but hasn’t ruled out an eventual return to the north east.
“I’ve got a job to finish here at QPR. When I went here, I said I wasn’t going to QPR to try and cut my teeth in the role,” he told Newcastle Fans TV.
“I’ve gone here to do a job and the job’s not completed yet.
“I love Newcastle United. I had a great time there, but I want to finish what I’m doing at QPR before I look at doing anything else.
“At some stage, I’d love to be back involved in the club if the opportunity came about.
“But at this moment, like I say, I’m very much committed to what I’m doing at QPR.”
Don’t know about you, but I’d love to see Big Les back at St James’ Park in some capacity down the line. What a guy.
