MK Dons manager Karl Robinson has admitted that Premier League side Newcastle United are interested in signing highly-rated midfielder Dele Alli.

The 18-year-old has attracted considerable interest from the top flight, but some reports have suggested that Newcastle could be about to jump to the front of the queue by tabling a £9million bid.

Robinson says that no official offer has been submitted yet however.

“There’s been a lot of talk over Dele and Newcastle United and certain clubs.

I think it’s a bit more than paper talk but there’s nothing that we’ve heard yet.”

Van Gaal insists Cambridge won't be easy

Manchester United manager Louis Van Gaal insists it won't be easy facing Cambridge United in the FA Cup tonight... even though there are 77 places between the two clubs.

Cambridge are currently 12th in League Two while the Red Devils - who beat League One Yeovil in Round Three - sit 3rd in the Premier League.

When you see Cambridge and you analyse Cambridge they play very direct, there's long balls, they have five or six players above one metre 90, so it's difficult for us to defend against.

When you're in the hat and man United are in there, you want Man United. Its just a pleasure and it'll be an honour to play against them.
