Aaron Hughes joined Newcastle when he was 17. He earned his first first international cap for Northern Ireland at 18!

Hughes made his debut for Newcastle at Nou Camp against Barcelona in the Champions League, in November 1997. He went on to play mostly in cups. He finally got his first league start and goal in the 8-0 trashing of Sheffield Wednesday in January 1998.

Hughes plays as a centre-half, but is also familiar with the full-back and left-back roles. Hughes is definitely one of the hottest prospects in English football.
