City Make Move For Shay Given!

Given is valued at £8m by City ... but according to our boy at St James' Park, United are holding out for £12m.

Newcastle are believed to be preparing for life without Given.

The Republic of Ireland keeper has had enough of the way the club is being run, after 11 happy years at St James's Park.

The player once again looked inconsolable as he left the field on Saturday.

Yet the Chronicle claims if Given was sold he would be the only departure from SJP during the transfer window.

United are set to retain the services of Steve Harper with a new contract while Dutch youngster Tim Krul is due to be recalled from his loan stint at Carlisle United.
