Newcastle boss Hughton handed modest transfer kitty

Newcastle United boss Chris Hughton will be handed a modest summer transfer budget for their Premiership return.

The Daily Mail says Toon owner Mike Ashley held budget talks with manager Hughton and club secretary Lee Charnley on Wednesday.

Hughton wants around 10 players to help Newcastle survive in the Premier League next season but Ashley is believed to have earmarked only £15m for spending.

Swindon's Charlie Austin, Blackpool's Charlie Adam, Aston Villa's Marlon Harewood and Marc Wilson of Portsmouth are among targets.
