Newcastle are set to lock down coach Nathan Brown on an 'open-ended' contract in the coming weeks, after Knights CEO Phil Gardner confirmed the news to the Newcastle Herald on Wednesday.

Gardner - who is also the boss of Wests Group - said the deal could be finalised as early as next week, with Brown poised to remain at the club on a rolling contract.

“Nathan’s comfortable - I’m comfortable. We’ll have his contract signed very soon,” Gardner told the Newcastle Herald.

“It’s been signed off on by the football committee. I’ve got a Wests board meeting on Thursday. They’ll agree to it there.

“I would have thought it could have been finalised by the end of the week but it may take a little longer.”
