Newcastle owner Mike Ashley will share out ?1m between the club's non-football staff if they beat Arsenal in their final game of the season on Sunday, Sky sources understand. Arsene Wenger's side must beat Newcastle at St James' Park to guarantee a top-four finish and with it the opportunity to play Champions League football for the 16th consecutive year. Arsenal's North London rivals Tottenham face Sunderland at White Hart Lane, knowing they could pip the Gunners to fourth spot if they slip up on Tyneside. Newcastle could yet finish as high as 10th if they beat Arsenal and Ashley is understood to have offered an unusual incentive to his side. Beckham was handed the captain's armband for the Ligue 1 champions and the England legend impressed against their already-relegated opponents. The 38-year-old may yet play in PSG's final game of the season against Lorient next Sunday but he made an emotional farewell to the Parc des Princes. Beckham hugged his team-mates before being replaced by Ezequiel Lavezzi eight minutes from time, while club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi also shed a tear. Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored either side of Blaise Matuidi's goal to secure the win for PSG. The left-back, who moved north from Arsenal in July 11, has committed his future to City until 2017. "I'm really happy to have agreed a new deal with city and I'm already looking forward to next season," Clichy told the club's official website. "Things didn't go the way we wanted them to this year but we'll come back stronger next season and learn from this experience."
