Rumour has it that Rafa Benitez is interested in taking Steve Harper to Liverpool in the summer, and although Kevin Keegan realises that such a move might tempt Harper he is not looking to sell him: ‘I am not looking for him to go out, though I’m sure he would come and see me if Liverpool come and knock on his door,’ Keegan told the Evening Chronicle. ‘I know Steve very well – he’s got a great sense of humour.

Having seen first hand what Harper could do when he was at the club the first time round Keegan isn’t surprised that teams are interested in the ‘keeper, and current number one at St James’: ‘I’m not surprised if other teams are interested.

‘Steve Harper is a very, very good goalkeeper.

‘Everyone’s always known that, but it’s always been hidden by the fact he’s not played.

‘He’s just played his 100th game, but he was here last time I was, which was 1936, so he must be about 50 now!’

Do Liverpool really want Harper, and if they do will he swap Tyneside move Merseyside this summer?
