Brawl talk annoys N'Zogbia

Newcastle United midfielder Charles N'Zogbia insists he is in no rush to leave St James' Park and has played down reports suggesting that he was involved in a bust-up with team-mate Abdoulaye Faye at the weekend. The 21-year-old Frenchman is angry to have read the stories concerning his alleged spat which was reported to have occurred before the final match of the season at Everton. N'Zogbia insists: "I am happy at Newcastle United and, to tell the truth, I have always been. "At the moment, all I am concentrating on in playing for France Under-21s in Sweden at the end of this month and then, like the rest of the Newcastle squad, I will be looking at what players we are going to sign. "I have been at Newcastle since I was 17 and I have never been involved in a fight with anyone. "And why would I pick a fight with Abdoulaye Faye? Not only is he a friend of mine but he is also a little bit bigger than me." N'Zogbia has scored nine times in 132 appearances for United since making his debut for the club in September 2004.
