Magpies boss could still leave St James’ Park if the club avoid relegation.
Alan Pardew has admitted he may be sacked even if Newcastle avoid relegation.
The Toon currently sit 17th in the Premier League, just one place and three points above the drop zone.
A win away at relegated QPR on Sunday would guarantee the Toon’s safety if Wigan lose at Arsenal in midweek but boss Pardew has admitted that beating the drop may not be enough to save his job at St James’ Park.
The 51-year-old, who signed an eight-year contract last year after guiding Newcastle to 5th place last season, said he would sit down with Magpies owner Mike Ashley at the end of the season to discuss the future.
“As soon as I know we’re in this division, that’s what I want to do with Mike,” Pardew told BBC Newcastle.
“He can tell me where he’s coming from and we can clear the air about how we want to take it forward.
“He could turn around and say, ‘sorry Pards, see you later and thanks very much. He could do that if we don’t make it, he could do that if we make it.
“Unfortunately for me I have to accept that decision.”
After travelling to Loftus Road, Newcastle face Champions League chasing Arsenal on the final day of the Premier League season at St James’ Park.
