Hughton happy to keep faith


Newcastle United boss Chris Hughton has revealed he has money to spend but is in no rush to put his hand in his pocket ahead of their return to the Premier League.

The Magpies secured an immediate return to the top-flight after winning last season's Championship table.

However, Hughton has suggested he is happy to keep faith with the same group of players who served him well last term.

"We have players from the last time we were in the Premier League who have improved and will be better players," he explained.

"We have to get the right tactics and continue some of the feel we had last season.

"Birmingham and Wolves did well with the squads largely that got them promoted.

"Having said that, yes, there is money to spend.

"Newcastle is in a different place to where we were a few years ago. The sums we had to spend then are not there any more.

"We have to be careful and get value for money. I expect players to come in before the end of the summer."
