Newcastle boss Hughton confident keeping Latin trio

Newcastle United boss Chris Hughton is confident keeping his Latin players.

Hughton is counting on Jose Enrique, Fabricio Coloccini and Jonas Gutierrez for Newcastle's return to the Premiership.

He told The Journal: "We had a few players who developed really well last year, but Jose was outstanding and so was Coloccini.

"They have both had to get used to English football and I thought they were two of our best players in the Championship.

"They played a huge role in getting us promoted and I was delighted with the pair of them.

"It normally takes time for foreign players to settle, but they are both very happy here and it shows in their football. It is the same with Jonás (Gutiérrez). Now they have a chance to show they can be just as effective in the Premier League and I am sure they will."
