Liverpool, Newcastle encouraged in battle for Tottenham's Lennon

Liverpool and Newcastle United are expected to battle for Tottenham winger Aaron Lennon.

The Manchester Evening News says although 21-year-old Lennon has played in a large percentage of games at White Hart Lane this season, Spurs insiders believe that boss Juande Ramos may allow him to leave as he bids to turn Tottenham into top four contenders.

Manchester City were also keen, but Lennon isn't expected to accept a move to Eastlands with Sven Goran Eriksson about to depart.
