Newcastle boss Hughton happy with experience of current squad

Newcastle United boss Chris Hughton feels comfortable going into the Premiership next season with his current squad.

Hughton believes experience will be critical when the players return to training in July.

"I know that people will be looking at who we are bringing in and plenty of names will be mentioned but we already have a side with lots of experience of the Premier League," the United boss said.

"I think that sets us apart from some of the other clubs who come up from the Championship and, of course, it gives us more of a chance that we have players with hundreds of games in the Premier League under their belt.

"We're not going into the unknown - what we hope is that those players who have played in the Premier League can be big players for us again next year.

"I hope that all of the players are better for a year playing together and winning a lot of games in the Championship. I certainly think they will be coming up full of confidence - and that is a big thing in football."
