Damien Duff linked with Newcastle

Both Newcastle and Tottenham were in the fray for the Irish winger but it looks like the Magpies have stolen a march on their rivals.

Newcastle are believed to be ready to offer 1o million pounds for the winger,who will be their first major signing this season.But a lot will depend on whether the Toons beat Lillestrom to confirm European football this season.If Glenn Roeder’s side does manage to do so,that will mean that Duff will probably leave Stamford Bridge for the Tyneside otherwise he will be heading for White Hart Lane where Spurs are guaranteed Uefa Cup football.

Duff’s signing will come as a boost for the Toons as Alan Shearer has retired and Michael Owen will miss most of next season after suffering an injury in the World Cup match against the Swedes.Newcastle have previously been linked with the likes of David Beckham,Ruud Van Nistelrooy and World Cup Golden Boot winner Miroslav Klose,but it looks like those rumours will remain what they were in the beginning-rumours
