Newcastle young gun Kemen 'biding his time'

Olivier Kemen insists he will remain patient as he strives to make his debut for Newcastle United.

?The 18-year old French midfielder has been training with the Magpies seniors recently but faces a task in stepping into John Carver's side as he sits behind the likes of Jack Colback, Vernon Anita and Mehdi Abeid in the pecking order.

?However, former Metz youngster Kemen admits he will continue to work hard in order to learn from the senior Toon players and develop his game at the top level.

?"At the beginning it was a dream," he told the Chronicle.

"Now though I see how people train and I see how they work.

"I just have to keep working and when the chance comes I have to respond with the right enthusiasm.

"I'm not scared - I just bide my time."?
