The 71-year-old is reportedly set to leave Newcastle United.
According to The Telegraph, Newcastle United's chief scout Graham Carr is set to leave the club.
The 71-year-old offered his resignation to Mike Ashley this past season as the Magpies suffered relegation into the Championship, and the Newcastle owner has reportedly decided to accept the decision.
Manager Rafael Benitez is reportedly set to bring in his own scouting team as he looks set to stay with the club despite their relegation.
Carr, who joined the club in 2010, earned a name for himself early on with shrewd recruitments of Cheick Tiote, Yohan Cabaye and Papiss Cisse to name but a few.
But in recent years, the veteran's perceived Midas touch in the transfer market has let him down following the arrival of some expensive flops such as Remy Cabella, Florian Thauvin, Emmanuele Riviere and Siem de Jong.
With Newcastle now a Championship club, Carr has shouldered some of the blame for the current state of the team, and the club's supporters were not overly disappointed to hear of his impending exit, it must be said.

Quite funny how Graham Carr is renowned for his expertise in the 'French market' yet missed out on players like Kante, Mahrez and Payet— Ross (@rossEFC95) May 17, 2016
