Chairman Steve Gibson will continue to support the club, but new Financial Fair Play rules mean sizable economies will have to be made once again with the regulations only allowing for an B£8million deficit.

Karanka told the Northern Echo: "I don't want to think about things beyond the next game. I work that way here with the players.

"The financial matters, we need to look at at the end of the season. It is an important thing for the club, because the money always is important, of course.

"The most important thing here is to have good players, and it does take money to achieve that.

"But when I came here, I told the chairman I would like to train with young players. We need to be intelligent and bring good players here."
