Ther are still some games left in the English Premier League and also in the major football leagues in Europe, and it looks like Newcastle manager Chris Hughton will be taking in a few of those remaining games.
Chris Hughton – will watch a few games in Europe
Chris will likely have a busy summer as he looks to strengthen his Newcastle squad before the upcoming tough season back in the Premiership.
Chris told the Newcastle official site today:
“It’s certainly an opportunity to look at players now we’re finished that little bit earlier.””During the season you are able to get to games, but not as many as you’d like because of our midweek matches.”
“But there are a lot of games over Europe during these next few weeks and it’s a good chance for myself and the staff to make the most of it.”
“I’ve taken in a few games already but intend to see a lot more during these next few weeks.”
Nothing has happened on the transfer front yet, although there is news again today that Newcastle may be a long term admirer of Motherwell’s 22 year-old center-back Mark Reynolds.
We would hope that Chris will do his transfer business early in the summer, but that’s not always possible of course.
We’ll stay tuned of course – and where are those new strips?
