Newcastle United are leading the race to sign Manchester United winger Wilfried Zaha on-loan in January.

Zaha has struggled to make an impact at Old Trafford since his £15million switch from Crystal Palace and is yet to make a Premier League appearance

Chelsea goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer has revealed he feared playing the great Arsenal sides more than any other team during his time in the Premier League.

The Australian, currently providing cover for number one Petr Cech at Stamford Bridge, says the likes of Thierry Henry, Robert Pires and Dennis Bergkamp were the best he has gone up against.

Meanwhile, current Gunners striker Nicklas Bendtner has been described as having an X factor by his international teammate, Lars Jacobsen.

The Arsenal man scored twice in Denmark’s 2-2 draw with Italy on Friday and Jacobsen insisted there would be more to come from Bendtner once he got back to full fitness.

Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp has claimed he was behind the ‘making of’ new sensation Andros Townsend.

Now managing QPR, Redknapp took the Spurs winger on loan last season at Loftus Road and claims his time there was the catalyst for his rise to making his England debut on Friday and winning the man of the match award.

Manchester City are using an unusual method to help train the young stars in their youth academy – a mobile app.

The Citizens’ staff have been using Coach’s Eye to analyse the movement of their youngsters and help point out where adjustments need to be made.

Barcelona and Ajax legend Johan Cruyff believes Neymar is easier to defend against than teammate Lionel Messi.

Neymar moved to Camp Nou this summer in a deal worth in excess of £50million, but Cruyff believes he is not as good a dribbler as Messi due to him not having a similar low centre of gravity.
