Rafael Benitez waiting on Newcastle United contract talks

Rafael Benitez says he is still waiting to hear from Newcastle United concerning his future with his current contract set to expire at the end of the season. 

Benitez, who saw his team share spoils with Brighton in a 1-1 draw on Saturday, has failed to reach an agreement with the club over a new deal and has been linked with a move away from St James Park. 

"Not really. Today was about the game. The day we have any news, we'll let you know," the Spaniard told Sky Sports when asked about his future. 

"Every day counts because in the end you want to do everything possible to start working. But we will see.

"This morning I saw Lee (Charnley, managing director). We talk every week. I'm relaxed. It's not depending on me. I am waiting.

"It's very clear: everyone has his own ideas. What do we want to do in the future? That is the key.

"If we have different visions, we'll have to find a point in between that we are happy with, if not we have to talk and try and move forward as soon as possible."
