There's not much going on in North East this transfer window but a few days left until transfer deadline day Here Is The City looks at the players from Newcastle United and Sunderland who may be looking for a fresh start elsewhere.
The former Leeds and Man United man is at a crossroads in his career. The question is whether his future lies as a midfielder or a striker, but moving to a Championship side seems most likely.

Sunderland and Newcastle fans are there any players you'd like to see given the boot?
