Newcastle owner Mike Ashley's only focus is to get the club back into the Barclays Premier League.

Managing director Derek Llambias has insisted the under-fire owner will back new manager Chris Hughton as far as he can as he continues his mission to win promotion from the Cola-Cola Championship at the first attempt.

Llambias told Sky Sports News: "We are here. We had to draw the line ourselves by taking it off the market. Mike has decided, 'That's it, I'm staying, I want to put some more money into it and let's get it promoted'."

He added: "He is desperate to get it promoted, that's his focus."
