Kevin Keegan is excited by the chance to unleash £10million striker Obafemi Martins on Newcastle´s fellow Barclays Premier League strugglers.

The 23-year-old Nigeria striker remains the the club´s leading scorer this season despite being marginalised by former manager Sam Allardyce as well as missing games while on African Nations Cup duty.

Keegan said: "He excites me very much as a player. He is very, very different to anything that not only have we got at this football club, but probably in the Premier League."
