Newcastle United chief Joe Kinnear has welcomed the club's plans for a new training ground complex.
Kinnear says the club's training ground redevelopment will help attract new players to the club.
"This is a hugely exciting development for Newcastle United," said Kinnear.
"We have one of football's great stadiums and we are delighted to now be announcing plans for a training complex which will rival any in Europe.
"Top players and top teams need top training and medical facilities.
"Our current training ground has served the club very well, but the new complex will give us all of the ingredients that we need to continue maintaining and enhancing the performance of elite footballers.
"It will also be an added attraction when we are looking to recruit players."
