Newcastle to bid for ex-Arsenal star; would he move to the north-east?

Kevin Keegan definitely has a thing for players with more than a bit of attacking panache, so a player like José Antonio Reyes is surely right up his street.
The good news is that the ex-Gooner should be available after his current side Atlético Madrid deemed him surplus to requirements.
