Newcastle midfielder Ritchie taking academy training

Newcastle United midfielder Matt Ritchie is taking his coaching badges at Benton.

Chronicle Live says Ritchie has taken charge of academy training sessions at Newcastle as he aims to earn his coaching badges before he hangs up his boots.

The versatile Magpies star could depart in January should the right deal appear.

The 32-year-old has only played one minute of league football this term despite being an ever-present figure on Tyneside in years gone by.
