Newcastle plan major bid for Chelsea's Bridge

Newcastle United boss Kevin Keegan is ready to offer £6.5 million for Chelsea fullback Wayne Bridge.

The News of the World says Keegan is confident a contract worth £50,000-a-week will lure Bridge to St James' Park.

Bridge, 27, who joined Chelsea from Southampton for £7m in 2003, has made just eight Premier League appearances this season.
