Sir John backs Swansea boss Martinez for Newcastle hotseat

Former Newcastle United Sir John Hall has recommended Swansea City boss Roberto Martinez for the Magpies hotseat.

"Do you go for a big name, like the (Guus) Hiddinks, or do you try and find someone who can give us the football we had under (Kevin) Keegan," Hall told BBC Five Live.

"There's the Swansea manager, Martinez, who seems to be turning them around."

Swansea are flying high in League One this season, three points clear of Nottingham Forest at the top of the table and with a game in hand.
