And Torquay United chairman Mike Bateson is apparently looking for answers as to why Newcastle youngster Marc Walton failed to turn up for training on Monday. Walton, 18, was due arrive at the League Two side for a week's trial.

Bateson told the Herald Express: "We're still waiting to hear what's happened to him. He may have had a problem, and we're still hoping to see him."

Walton has been a regular in the Magpies' reserves, scoring in a 5-0 win against West Brom reserves this month.
