Newcastle move to beat Sunderland for Man Utd midfielder Gibson

Newcastle United are moving to trump Sunderland for Manchester United midfielder Darron Gibson.

The Sunday Mirror says Newcastle are ­attempting to hijack Gibson's proposed £5million move to north-east rivals ­Sunderland.

The Manchester United midfielder has been given permission to open talks with Sunderland after the Premier League champions accepted a bid last week.

But Newcastle boss Alan Pardew will match ­Sunderland's offer in the next 48 hours and attempt to persuade Gibson to snub their arch-rivals.

The 23-year-old Republic of Ireland international ­accepts he has no future at Old Trafford.
