Jimmy Briand – Newcastle again linked with player
There is news today that Newcastle are interested in 22 year-old Rennes forward Jimmy Briand.
Portsmouth have been favorites for the forward since the January transfer market but French sources today have said that both Newcastle and Arsenal are also tracking the youngster.

Simon Vukcevic – attacking midfielder plays for Sporting Lisbon
The agent of Sporting Lisbon attacking midfielder Simon Vukcevic has revealed the interest of three Premiership clubs.
Zoran Stojadinovic claimed Everton, Manchester City, Newcastle United, Valencia and Atletico Madrid all want his client during an interview with Blic.
Stojadinovic said today:
“He is very happy because big clubs are interested in giving him a contract,”
“But he’s concentrating only on Sporting and wants to help them ensure qualification for the Champions League.”
Of course the more clubs interested in the player the better it is for his agent, so he’ll mention as many clubs as he can.
Simon is just 22 years old and has played for Lisbon 19 times since moving from FC Saturn last summer, and has scored 7 goals.
He has already played for Montenegro 3 times so far.
