Hughton had a relatively low-key summer market campaign and is pleased with what he has available.

"When you look at the players we have signed, they all have their best years in front of them.
"Sol Campbell is out of that category, of course, but he has been brought in for different reasons, and these young players can benefit from his experience in games and on the training ground.
"But overall we are looking to the future with this group."
