HOPE SPRINGS

Newcastle make four new signings in the off-season, including winger Jonas Gutierrez (right) and defender Fabricio Coloccini, both Argentine internationals.

FC Metz defender Sebastien Bassong and Liverpool midfielder Danny Guthrie are also brought on board by manager Kevin Keegan, as is young Deportivo La Coruna striker Xisco.

However, several players leave St James' Park, with midfielder James Milner, despite starting the season for the Magpies, joining Aston Villa for £12m at the end of the month.
