Kinnear receives two-year offer

LONDON (AP) Joe Kinnear said Wednesday that he had been offered a new two-year contract as Newcastle manager, six months after he was forced to quit the former Premier League club because of health problems.

Kinnear, 62, said that owner Mike Ashley, who has been trying to sell the club since it was relegated from the top division at the end of last season, asked him to return two weeks ago but that he could not do so until October because he is still recuperating from heart surgery.
