Hughes Linked With Newcastle Job
Blackburn Rovers manager Mark Hughes is once again being linked with the now vacant position at Newcastle United.
Hughes has been a target for Newcastle for sometime now, and even when Sam Allardyce was in charge at St James' Park he was being linked with the club as their owner Mike Ashley is understood to be an admirer of Hughes'.
Now with Allardyce having left Newcastle "by mutual consent" the position is available and a lot of people are beginning to feel that Sparky is the man that they want, despite Portsmouth manager Harry Redknapp being the current favourite. The suggestion is that Sparky might feel that he has taken Rovers as far as he can, something I would COMPLETELY disagree with.
A senior Rovers source told the Lancashire Telegraph: "We've heard nothing from Newcastle United and that's how we hope it stays."
