The Journal says the Spear is attracting interest from Arsenal, who have apparently made a move. However sources close to the player have suggested he favours a move north in a deal which is likely to cost the Magpies around £250,000.

Previously billed as the next Wayne Rooney, the striker would be a welcome addition to Newcastle’s growing army of talented youngsters. With news that Geordie Alan Thompson, the ex Newcastle and Celtic winger is to be a coach in the academy, things are looking bright for the future. Dennis Wise must have been busy.

Comments welcome.
