The Express and Star claim that Steffen Iversen is seeking showdown talks with Glenn.

The striker has not featured recently and is quoted as saying: "I'm not sure what is going on. I haven't had any reasons so I have got to have talks with Glenn Hoddle and find out what is happening - but I am not panicking.

Also in the Star report, Gus Poyet responds to claims of a bust-up with John Gorman after he was substituted on Sunday.

"We talked and everything has been sorted out," explained Gus. "He is Scottish and I am South American and we are both passionate about football. We didn't say sorry. The problem is with me and not John - I was just frustrated."

A snippet in the Mirror says that Teddy Sheringham has yet to be offered a new deal by the club, claiming that Glenn does not want to open talks until next year.

The Mirror spotlights Gus Poyet's frustration after he was substituted and points to an exchange of words between him and John Gorman, describing it as a 'bust-up'.
