Newcastle’s new owners are now embarking upon a wholesale assessment of the club and are expected to make a raft of changes as they drive the Magpies towards the elite of the game.
The Magpies are tipped to show manager Steve Bruce the door, while they are also expected to appoint a sporting director.
Other roles will also need to be filled as Newcastle’s owners look to make good on their promise to get the team competing for trophies.
And it has emerged that McParland, who worked at both Liverpool and Rangers, was on Tyneside on Thursday night.
McParland is under consideration by Newcastle for a role at the club.
It is unclear what role McParland is being considered for, but he is an experienced transfer operator and talent spotter.
Newcastle are expected to look to bolster their squad when the January transfer window swings open for business.
McParland worked as the academy director at Liverpool, while he had stints as director of football at both Brentford and Burnley.
He then headed to Rangers, where he worked as the club’s director of recruitment.
