Best seeks loan move

REPUBLIC of Ireland striker Leon Best is set for a loan move away from Newcastle United and can choose from three keen Championship clubs - Leicester, Crystal Palace and Coventry all in the queue.

Best failed to make any impact at St James Park during Chris Hughton's promotion winning run last season and an injury to ankle ligaments ended any chance he had of convincing sceptical Toon fans that he was good enough for the Premier League.

With rehab on his ankle injury almost complete, Hughton wants to accelerate his recovery by giving him competitive football elsewhere.
