Man City Alert - Shay Given
Google language translator
Manchester City is understood to be monitoring the situation surrounding Newcastle United's unsettled keeper, Shay Given.
Mark Hughes is known to be on the lookout for a new goalie, someone who can give Joe Hart a run for his money, but would Given be that person?
Given's time at Newcastle is untenable especially when his solicitor, Michael Kennedy published the following statement.
"Shay is very despondent following the very poor performance of the team against Liverpool last weekend. It was the lowest point of his football career and a performance that he would not wish to be repeated."
"When he signed a new five-year contract in 2006 it was on the basis that the club would challenge for major honours, but on the present evidence all that he can see ahead with the turmoil on and off the pitch is a battle for survival."
"Having served the club loyally for over 11 years, Shay feels compelled to consider his position in the light of the interest being expressed in him by Manchester City, Arsenal and Tottenham."
What do you think? Should Sparky go after the Republic of Ireland keeper and if so, how much do you think would be a reasonable offer?
