Newcastle aware of Arsenal interest for Given

Arsenal are weighing up a bid for Newcastle United goalkeeper Shay Given.

The Evening Chronicle says sources both at St James's Park and in the capital have confirmed Arsenal's interest in United's 32-year-old Republic of Ireland international.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has made no secret of his admiration for Given and he is on the look-out for a new keeper now that Jens Lehmann has joined Stuttgart.
