Last updated : 05 January 2010 By Kevin Markey
Newcastle United remain favourites for the striker, but after dumping Manchester United out of the Cup on Sunday, Beckford now has Premiership clubs chasing him.

The Daily Star says Beckford's strike that ended Manchester United's cup ambitions has dramatically moved the goalposts with several Premier League clubs lining up a move.

Wigan, Stoke and Birmingham are all expected to join the race for his signature.
