Peter Beardsley: "I think that's still Michael's dream - to wear the number nine shirt for Newcastle.

"For me, it wasn't the right choice for us to sell him in the first place.

"Michael should've stayed here and developed and then he would never have gone to Sunderland and he might be in our first team now. He is the type of player we could do with now.

"Michael still lives here [Newcastle], he's still got family here. Obviously he's in Cardiff when he's playing football, but he comes up here whenever it's possible. He's still black and white.

"As Newcastle Academy staff, we would love to have him back here."
