Newcastle owner Ashley visits players at Benton HQ

Newcastle United owner Mike Ashley has been a visitor to their Benton training HQ this week.

Newcastle meet Tottenham in the Capital One Cup quarterfinals tonight.

The Evening Chronicle says it was a routine visit to meet Alan Pardew and his players.

Ashley's appearance at Benton is not an everyday occurrence but while Pardew faced questions about his owner's links with Glasgow Rangers, his visit to the club's training ground was evidence that the Buckinghamshire tycoon remains committed to the cause at Newcastle.

It is believed that United are also perplexed at constant talk over Ashley selling Newcastle.
