Former striker Faustino Asprilla has revealed he will be added to Newcastle United's youth coaching stocks.

The 43-year old Colombian is keen to focus the Magpies' attention to youngsters in his own country and will step into his new role next month according to a radio interview on Antena 2.

Asprilla wants to buck the trend of continually eyeing Spanish talent: "Some teams in England are going after the Spaniards, so I want Newcastle to fix their eyes on Colombian talent."
