I want Kenny to Teale me in.
The Clydebank winger is desperate for United gaffer Kenny Dalglish to sign him up so that he can pick up a few tips from Gallic genius David Ginola.
Ginola's being tipped with a move back to France, with Marseille poised to offer pounds 3m at the end of the season.
But under-21 cap Teale is hoping it's not too late to link up with him at St James' Park.
The 18-year-old said: "Ginola's skill is frightening - the ball seems to be glued to his feet.
"I can't remember him losing the ball once in training when I was at Newcastle, and playing with him was a dream.
"I was learning things from him every minute and I watched him closely. That can only make me a better player.
"I never actually spoke to him off the park, but he does things on it which you couldn't explain anyway.
"You can't help but have respect for him. He has class written all over him and he's the kind of player everyone wants to be like.
"Newcastle have so many good players - but Ginola is world-class.
"No one acts the big shot at the club, though. Kenny Dalglish is one of my all- time heroes, but after I trained with them I was chatting to him in his office.
"He asked me how Clydebank were getting on and seemed genuinely interested."
Teale - who has also been on trial with Spurs this season - admits that he wants someone to take a gamble on him soon.
Bankies boss Brian Wright's patience has been tested by the English Premiership giants who only want to whisk his kid away on trial without any firm commitment.
And Gary declared: "I know I can do a job for a club at the highest level, but I wish someone would give me a chance."
Teale will come back to earth on Saturday, when he swaps the glitz of Newcastle for homely Boghead, re- joining his Clydebank mates to face Dundee in the First Division.
He added: "It's brilliant when I go down to New- castle and London, but I'm getting fed up coming back with nothing.
"I love going to these clubs - they are both massive - but I don't want to do it forever.
"It's great experience and I don't mind the fact that I'm leaving a place like White Hart Lane or St James Park to come back to Boghead.
"But I don't want to spend all my time travelling all over the country. That's not doing anyone any good."
