Newcastle boss Keegan keen on Liverpool's Hyypia

Liverpool defender Sami Hyypia has emerged as a target for Newcastle United boss Kevin Keegan.

The Finnish defender is coming towards the end of his contract at Anfield, and it is widely thought that at 34 he will not be offered another one.

Keegan is looking to add an experienced Premier League centre-half to his squad, and reports suggest he could be set to pay £1m to take Hyypia to St James's Park during this month's transfer window.
