Liverpool, Newcastle rival Chelsea for Ben Haim

Liverpool and Newcastle will rival Chelsea for off contract Bolton Wanderers defender Tal Ben Haim.

The Observer says Chelsea will have to fight off Liverpool and Newcastle, the latter now managed by the Israel central defender's former boss at Bolton, Sam Allardyce. The 25-year-old would have moved to Stamford Bridge in January if Bolton had not demanded £3m for a player who is now a free agent.
