No Tyne Bridge ... After Five Years Of Hoping!

Sir Bobby Robson, Graeme Souness and Glenn Roeder all tried to sign the England left-back for Newcastle, but none achieved it.
Bridge was given permission to speak to City on Friday after Chelsea accepted a fee reported to be in the region of £12million.

Bridge is believed to have travelled to Manchester last night to discuss personal terms with the Eastlands outfit and could complete his move on Saturday subject to a medical.

Let's be honest, I'm sure Joe Kinnear would love to sign the player ... but he'll be lucky to get HALF the £12m City are going pay (from Mike Ashley) ... and that will be to buy THREE players!
