Nolan confident of new recruits

Next Story

Newcastle midfielder Kevin Nolan does not know if the troubled Toon will lose more men before the season starts - but he is confident players will queue up to go to St James' Park.

While Newcastle owner Mike Ashley continues to look for someone to buy the cash-strapped club following relegation from the Barclays Premier League last season, interim manager Chris Hughton is trying to prepare the squad for the opening-day Coca-Cola Championship fixture at West Brom next week.

Nolan said: "We know as much as you guys but all the lads who are here at the moment have said that they want to stick with us and give 100% for Newcastle.

"Now if a club comes in and offers a ridiculous amount of money for someone then that could all change.

"We are 110% behind Chris and his staff and they are 110% behind us.

"As a team we have to stick together and hopefully try and get through to September without losing too many players.

"But one thing we will have to do if it stays the way it is, is to bring a couple of new faces in to freshen things up and to strengthen in places where we need to strengthen.

"It is big decision time for people upstairs.

"That's up to them, we are just getting on with things on the pitch and they are doing their thing.

"We are not here to ask them to do anything, all we want is to produce on the pitch.

"But no one will find it difficult coming to this club. It is a fantastic club, it has great history."
