Newcastle boss Keegan confident keeping squad together
Newcastle United boss Kevin Keegan is confident of keeping his squad intact.
Asked about Damien Duff's future, he said: "There has been speculation about every one of our players, but I definitely want to keep him.
"They set the standards, they are the ones who do it right every day. Rain or sunshine, it doesn't make any difference to them.
"We have got five very good players competing for two-and-a-half places in the team.
"We haven't got that everywhere, so we need to address that and that is what we are trying to do.
"It might look like not so successfully at the moment, but there is a long time to go and there will be plenty of opportunities.
"If the right player comes along and we think he is right for Newcastle United, we will be in there pitching."
