Will U's Face Fight For Players?!?

Will U's Face Fight For Players?!?

Newcastle United assistant manager Terry McDermott believes The Magpies will be signing players from Colchester United, if Kevin Keegan's side get relegated.

Mcdermott told The Times: 'The most important thing is safety and then we can talk about players. Until then, it`s a waste of time. You could talk about Ronaldinho, Steven Gerrard or David Beckham, but if we go down we`ll be signing players from Colchester and Gillingham.'

So will the U's face a fight to hang onto their players?
