Chronicle: "Glenn Roeder, who is aware of the interest from Highbury, will fight tooth and nail to hold on to the 19-year-old midfielder.

"N'Zogbia is still some way short of reaching his potential but Wenger, the manager Roeder perhaps admires most in the Premiership, has the knack of bringing on young players like that.

"Fortunately, N'Zogbia is under contract at St James' Park, and when Roeder decides on who is staying and who he would like to go, the man signed from French club Le Havre is most definitely in the former category."

Roeder: "Charles is one of our quiet men who trains hard and well and then goes home. Obviously, the World Cup in Germany in the summer will come a bit too early for him but he should be now thinking about getting into the French Under-21 set-up."
