Newcastle and Saints on Jay-Rod alert

Eddie Howe has put Newcastle and Southampton on alert by conceding 21-goal striker Jay Rodriguez could be sold in the summer.
Both clubs have made bids for Rodriguez, 22, in the recent past and still fancy a move for the prolific star.
And while Burnley snubbed their earlier offers, boss Howe admits it may be hard to keep the hitman.
He said: "If we can keep hold of him we’d love to but I would think any Premier League team who has seen him and done their homework will see what a season he's had.
"They will look at his age and his goalscoring record and all the other attributes that he’s got.
"I’m sure there’ll be clubs looking at him and I’m sure there have been clubs looking at him this season. We’ll wait and see on that one."
