The Guardian reports that Newcastle winger James Milner is surplus to requirements at St James’ Park and this has got three clubs drooling over the prospect of nabbing him:

Not quite sure what kind of playing time he’d get at Liverpool, but having got rid of antipodean benchwarmer Harry Kewell, they could see Milner as an improvement over the Aussie. Milner would obviously have more chance of clocking up some first-team performances at Everton or Villa, and although it seems like he has been around for ages, Milner is only 22 – and as such is still full of potential.
