Toon devise transfers for Anderson and Hammill

Toon devise transfers for Anderson and Hammill

Newcastle United owner Mike Ashley will hand Chris Hughton with a 'sizeable' transfer kitty come the reopening of the transfer window, it has emerged.

The owner of the SportsDirect retail chain has promised Hughton with at least £6 million to spend in January, with any income from outgoing transfers also being made available.

However, Hughton is thinking long-term, and has scouted potential targets who may join next summer's seige in the Premier League.

Toon scouts have been monitoring two potential targets, and it is thought that both are summer targets should the Championship side earn promotion.

Gaffer Hughton sent his boys down to Barnsley, and Nottingham Forest to assess wingers Adam Hammill, and Paul Anderson respectively, although, both are thought to be long-term targets.

No fees have been mentioned, however, should Newcastle United go straight back up to the Premiership, deals for the duo will be vigorously pursued.
