Newcastle boss dismisses links with a trio of players

Chris Hughton has played down speculation linking Newcastle with moves for Sol Campbell, Jimmy Bullard and Andy O'Brien.

Hughton told The Chronicle: "There's been talk about Sol Campbell and Andy O'Brien in the past and there are always names that keep coming up, but we've not looked into signing those players. Jimmy Bullard is another player that has not been mentioned.

"There are some players we are interested in and we're open-minded about those options."
