The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

BRIGHTON boss Chris Hughton has rub­bished re­ports link­ing Lewis Dunk with a move to New­cas­tle.

The 23-year-old cen­tre­back missed the mid­week Cap­i­tal One Cup clash with Southend, in­creas­ing spec­u­la­tion that he is on his way.

But Hughton, a for­mer New­cas­tle man­ager, says Dunk is go­ing nowhere.

“As far as I know, it is spec­u­la­tion,” Hughton said. “He is a good player and some­times that will hap­pen.

“It is not the first time and it won’t be the last.”

Hughton has added to his de­fence, sign­ing Uwe Hune­meier from Pader­born

“I think the Cham­pi­onship is the best sec­ond di­vi­sion in the world,” said the Ger­man.
