Newcastle United number one goalkeeper Shay Given has told his current boss, Joe Kinnear that he wants to talk to Manchester City over a possible move.

‘I have bent over backwards to keep him – I’ve tried to make him stay,” Kinnear told the Evening Chronicle.

‘He wants a new challenge and he wants to speak to Manchester City.’

News coming out of Manchester suggests the 32-year-old Republic of Ireland keeper is in the City for tonight’s Premier League clash; however, he won’t be in the Newcastle squad, but instead agreeing personal terms with the Eastlands club.
