Newcastle United boss Chris Hughton admits John Carver could return to the club.

Sir Bobby Robson's No2 is being linked with a return to Newcastle as a replacement for departing reserves coach Alan Thompson.

Hughton told the Evening Chronicle: “Everybody knows that John has a good association with the club.

“He’s from the area, and it is not a surprise that he’s been mentioned.

“He would be the same as anybody else, though – we will have options when it comes to filling the position.”
