Didier Deschamps, who captained France to glory at the 1998 World Cup and Euro 2000, admits he would be interested in the role if he was approached.

Deschamps: "I have had no official approach from Newcastle but I am flattered to be linked with such speculation.

"It would be an exciting challenge. Newcastle are a big club."

Allegedly the 39-year-old would be interested in appointing his former Stamford Bridge team-mate Gianfranco Zola as his assistant if offered the role on Tyneside.
