Duff heading for summer exit as Newcastle eye Reyes

Friday March 28 2008

Duff has endured a torrid time since making the move from Chelsea in 2006.

 

DAMIEN DUFF could be on the way out of Newcastle United in the summer if the Magpies are successful in landing Atletico Madrid striker Jose Antonio Reyes.

 

Reports from Spain yesterday indicated that Newcastle are hot on the trail of the former Arsenal man and see him as a replacement in their attacking ranks for Duff who has failed to sparkle at St James' Park. The Irish star has been dropped by Kevin Keegan and has failed to even make the bench for their last two league encounters. Despite accommodating him since his comeback, Keegan admits that Duff was performing below his best.

 

"I wanted to put a team out that had a goal threat in it," said the Newcastle boss in explaining his decision.

 

The Ballyboden native has endured a torrid time since making the move from Chelsea in 2006.
