Ashley takes Newcastle off market

Newcastle owner Mike Ashley has taken the club off the market after failing to find a buyer, and has given Chris Hughton a contract to the end of next season as manager.
Ashley wanted a reduced price of 80 million pounds ($131 million) in cash for a club he bought for 134 million pounds two years ago.
He says he will now give the club another 20 million pounds to help fund a return to the Premier League and will retain the coach who has taken the northeast England club to the top of the second-tier League Championship.
