Villa, Newcastle move for Liverpool's Riise

Aston Villa and Newcastle United are being linked with Liverpool wing-back John Arne Riise.

The Evening Chronicle says Riise was left out of the Liverpool 16 for Sunday night's Premier League game with Aston Villa at Anfield, prompting talk that this had been done at the request of Martin O'Neill who wants to take the Norwegian international to Villa Park.

But Riise is the sort of attacking left-back that Toon boss Kevin Keegan likes - in the mould of one of his first signings in his first spell as manager at St James' Park John Beresford - and could be the answer to one of United's problem positions.
