Watford defender Mariappa flattered by Newcastle interest

Watford skipper Adrian Mariappa is flattered by interest from Newcastle United.

Tonight's clash with Tottenham could be Mariappa's last in a Watford shirt, with Newcastle eager to sign the defender before Tuesday's transfer deadline.

The 25-year-old said: "It's flattering to be linked with a big club but my focus is all on this game."
