Roeder: ‘We are not looking for fat-cat millionaires coming to St James’ Park who will only waste the club’s, and our supporters’, money. I only want players who are not only hungry for success, but absolutely starving.
And I want players who will see a transfer to Newcastle as a move up and not a move down.

‘I want players who have been in the Premiership who are so upset with their managers for not using them that they will come here with plenty to prove.

‘Don’t get me wrong, I love working with great players. But they have to be the right players for Newcastle and our supporters.’
