Zog off?

Oh joy. Now it seems as though our brightest prospect may be set to jump ship in the summer.

Kevin Keegan's been quoted by L'Equipe as saying: "Charles came to talk to me about speculation that there was interest from Spurs. We'll look at it in the summer as the signs are he is not happy here."

The Zog's departure would be little short of a disaster - particularly given the new emphasis on identifying, nurturing and developing young talent. Along with Steven Taylor and the ever-dependable Shay Given, he's been one of our best performers so far in what has been a hugely disappointing season, the one player who's regularly carried a genuine attacking threat even when picked out of position at left back. His chief rival for the left wing spot, Damien Duff, has improved of late, but if it came down to a straight choice between the two I wouldn't hesitate to plump for N'Zogbia.

Little wonder that it's Arsenal and Spurs who are reported to be chasing his signature - after all, Londoners are renowned for liking a bit of Charlie...
