Newcastle boss Allardyce: Emre can be our star
Newcastle United boss Sam Allardyce is delighted with Emre's application and is convinced the Turk can be a big player for the Toon.
"The more stamina he has, the more skill he shows. He'll get on the ball more and more to show the skills that's he's got."
Allardyce added: "Emre's knuckled down exceptionally well over the last two or three weeks.
"He had a really good game for the reserves, and came off the bench (against Everton) and made a huge contribution, so that's him now pushing for a first-team place."
