Rozehnal Wants Out, Duo Want To Stay

Rozehnal Wants Out, Duo Want To Stay

David Rozehnal, who has been on loan with Lazio since January has admitted that he would like to stay in Italy on a permanent basis: 'In the last five games I have played from the start and it has given me the self-confidence I had when I was playing for Paris St Germain,' Rozehnal told Sport. 'Everything is looking to be returning to normal, I hope it will continue this way.

'I have not played as much I have wanted to. Now it is up to Lazio to make a decision.

'If I was playing then I would definitely come. It is important for me to play regularly.

'I would not like to struggle here in a situation where I play one game and sit out the next three.'

Rozehnal was a Sam Allardyce signing but found holding down a regular first-team place difficult, and when Kevin Keegan took over he decided loaning the Czech international out was in the best interests of everyone.

Do you think that Rozehnal will return to St James', or is his Toon career over?

Charles N'Zogbia however has said that he is happy to stay at St James' despite reports that he wanted to leave: 'I am happy at Newcastle United and, to tell the truth, I have always been,' N'Zogbia told the Journal. 'At the moment, all I am concentrating on in playing for France Under-21s in Sweden at the end of this month and then, like the rest of the Newcastle squad, I will be looking at what players we are going to sign.'

He was however disappointed at reports that he had been involved in a fight with Abdoulaye Faye before the final match of the season, he added: 'I have been at Newcastle since I was 17 and I have never been involved in a fight with anyone.

'And why would I pick a fight with Abdoulaye Faye? Not only is he a friend of mine but he is also a little bit bigger than me.'

Another believed to be willing to stay and fight for his place despite rumours linking him with others including Glasgow Rangers and Middlesbrough is Alan Smith.
