Deschamps jetting in for Newcastle talks

Didier Deschamps is set for talks with Newcastle United about the vacant manager's job.

The former French national skipper is due to fly in to Tyneside soon for talks with Magpies directors about replacing Sam Allardyce, who was sacked last week.

Their troubles were further compounded by a 6-0 thumping at Manchester United in the Premier League on Saturday evening and within 24 hours, the board had established contact with the man who took unfancied Monaco to the Champions League final in 2004.
