Ex-Middlesbrough coach Scott in frame for Newcastle move

Former Middlesbrough coach Martin Scott is being linked with Newcastle United.

Toon boss Chris Hughton is keen to expand his coaching staff, particularly with Alan Thompson set to move to Celtic.

The Journal says Scott is a leading contender for a role on Newcastle's coaching staff. Scott, who departed Boro earlier this month, was reserve-team coach at the Riverside and also has Academy experience.

With United looking to fast-track some of their brightest young prospects into the first team over the next few years, Scott would appear to tick all the boxes for Hughton.
