Tyneside hero Alan Shearer and Blackburn manager Mark Hughes remain among the front-runners as Newcastle continue their search for a new manager.

Record goalscorer Shearer had his cause trumpeted by Portsmouth boss Harry Redknapp - who rejected the Magpies on Saturday - while Hughes refused to categorically rule out a move.
