Newcastle boss Alan Pardew is due to sit down with owner Mike Ashley to discuss the best way to move the club forward.
It is understood the pair, along with managing director Derek Llambias, are due to hold talks to assess what went wrong in the recently completed season and to plot a route back to the upper reaches of the Barclays Premier League table.
Pardew's future has been the topic of intense speculation in recent weeks with the club engaged in a tooth and nail fight for top-flight survival after a desperately disappointing domestic campaign.
However, the 51-year-old, who signed an eight-year contract in September last year, has been bullish in the wake of the 2-1 victory at QPR, which ended their fears, and was certainly looking to the future as he contemplated his summer rebuilding programme at the weekend.
Pardew said: "The most important thing is that we react and respond to this season as a club, and I hope we can do that and then have a rest because trust me, it has been tough on a number of levels.
"But I have learned a lot and I will be better for it."
