Following on from the various weekend reports of Shay Given moving away from Tyneside, it was a double whammy today as the links to Arsenal continued, this time with an £8m bid suggested. Given (no pun intended) Ashley`s penchant for raking in the cash a la Milner, expect anything in that region to be accepted.

Meanwhile the alleged replacement? Paddy Kenny from Sheffield United for £5m.

Thanks but no thanks.
