GOOD MORNING FOOTY FANS
Newcastle could be set to test Chelsea’s resolve with the club thought to be in contact with the agents of Timo Werner.
German newspaper Bild claims the Magpies are eyeing the Blues striker with the club’s new owners reportedly ready to splash the cash in January.
It is thought Amanda Staveley, who is a Newcastle board member, is looking to make use of her contacts in the sport with Werner sharing the same representatives as Switzerland defender Fabian Schar.
Meanwhile, Brendan Rodgers is NOT interested in replacing Steve Bruce at Newcastle.
The Telegraph claims Rodgers is 100 per cent committed to Leicester despite links with the Toon following their £300million Saudi takeover.
Bruce is expected to be sacked this week by the new consortium.
Ex-Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is the current favourite to take charge.
Finally, Phil Foden has agreed terms on a new six-year deal at Manchester City.
SunSport reported on Tuesday that the England ace hoped to finalise talks over his contract extension on his return from international duty.
And it is understood the paperwork will be signed and the agreement, keeping him at the Etihad until summer 2027, announced in the coming days.
City have rewarded Foden with a pay rise which will make him one of the best-paid young players in world football.
He had three years left on his current deal, which earned him £30,000 a week.
