Toon boss Glenn Roeder has blasted the rumours that Damien Duff is being sent to The Mackams as 'utter rubbish'.
The papers have been full of suggestions that the winger was on his way out and Sunderland being the likely destination, according to Roeder, that is nowhere near the truth.
He told nufc.co.uk: 'The speculation surrounding Damien Duff and a move to Sunderland is utter rubbish. There is not an ounce of truth in it. Damien is at Newcastle United for the long haul. He only signed a five-year contract last summer. He did not have a pre-season when he joined us from Chelsea and that always makes it difficult for a player as it means he is playing catch-up.'
'He has now also got over the knee injury that has meant an interrupted first season here at St. James' Park, but in the last couple of games he has probably looked our best player, as well as being outstanding for Ireland in their last two games. I fully expect Damien to finish the last seven games of the season very strongly for us. I am putting a squad together here of my own players and players that I want to be here for the long haul and Damien is one of those.'
Where do the papers get this from? Do they all sit around the table in a pub and decide what story to make up next? If so, where do I apply for the job? Have you heard the latest, Dyer is going to Barcelona for £20million. There, told you I could do it.
