Keegan admits N'Zogbia unsettled at Newcastle

Newcastle boss Kevin Keegan has conceded that Charles N'Zogbia is unsettled at St James' Park.

The 21-year-old, arguably The Magpies' most impressive performer this season, was rumoured to want a move away from the club during the January transfer window.

Keegan will reassess the France Under-21 international's situation in the summer.

"Charles came to see me about all the speculation and I very honestly said, 'I've had no enquiries about you.'

"He's just signed a new contract here, but it's something we'll have to revisit in the summer because the signs are he's not that happy here.

"But this is a big club and we've got two or three months to work with him.''

Keegan views N'Zogbia's long-term future - be that at Newcastle or elsewhere - as a winger, despite his fine form at full back.

"He has done very well again playing at left back. I'm not saying it's his best position, but he's a gem of a lad - he never complains at all.

"He can play in midfield and left back, but his best position is definitely on the left of a midfield four and bombing on.''
