Given to wait on Newcastle future
Newcastle United goalkeeper Shay Given
Newcastle goalkeeper Shay Given says he will wait until next summer before deciding on his St James' Park future.

The 29-year-old Republic of Ireland international has two years left on his current deal and has been linked with a move away from the Magpies.

"So far they have not offered me a new deal, so we will have to see where this season takes us and I will look at it again," he told the News of the World.

"But I have to say I am in no mad rush to sign a new contract at Newcastle."

Given has been linked with moves to Manchester United and Arsenal this summer after several seasons as one of the Premiership's top stoppers.

And after seeing Newcastle finish 14th last season Given has been disappointed by the club's lack of activity in the transfer market.

He added: "We have sold six players and brought in two so anyone can do the maths and see we are short."
