Seeing the way the Newcastle manager dealt with Michael Owen's proposed exit, the thought of N'Zogbia calling the shots with Sam Allardyce is very doubtful.

The player's representative Willie McKay met Allardyce for talks to clear the air surrounding N'Zogbia's position at St James' Park. But I can promise you ... there will be no promises from Sam.

The French 21-year-old stormed out of the Toon camp on the final day of last season after refusing to take his place on the bench after an argument at United's hotel with stand-in boss Nigel Pearson.

But it was his antics with Roeder, concerning his mobile phone, that had the likes of Scott Parker and Steven Taylor furious. His 'lack of respect' came from using his phone in the dug-out when Newcastle played at Fratton Park, and texting friends when Roeder was giving team-talks.

The winger says he is not convinced his future is with the Magpies, and Sam could just be in the mood to agree.

According to The Chronicle, Fulham and Bolton, who are both keen on signing the French ace. The player is contracted to United for another three years.
