Newcastle keeper Given aware of Jussi talk

Newcastle United goalkeeper Shay Given is determined not to be unsettled by links with Bolton Wanderers No1 Jussi Jaaskelainen.

He told the Evening Chronicle: "Of course both Steve Harper and myself have heard all the talk about Jussi coming here.

"But don't forget that both Steve and myself have been at St James's Park a long time and we have heard all this talk and speculation before.

"I know what I can do, and that's what I will be concentrating on and I am sure Steve Harper feels the same."
