Newcastle caretaker manager John Carver has been sacked along with coach Steve Stone, BBC Sport has learned. Carver, 50, took charge of the final 20 games of this season following the departure of Alan Pardew to Crystal Palace but won just three matches. The club only escaped relegation on the final day of the season. Former England and Derby manager Steve McClaren is the favourite to become Pardew's permanent successor when he returns from holiday later this week.
