Unfortunately it looks like it’s true that Nobby Solano wants to move to London to be nearer to his children,
Apparently Nobby has recently separated from his wife Claudia, and she recently moved to London to enhance her career opportunities, taking the kids with her.
That’s a great pity because we thought Nobby was looking really great again at Newcastle.
Nobby Solano - his kids are now living in London with his estranged wife Claudia
This is what Nobby had to say about the situation today to the Sunday Sun today:
â€œIt causes me sorrow to have to make this decision.â€“But my children have moved to London and I want to be near them,â€
â€œItâ€™s no secret that I have been separated for a while from my wife (Claudia), who until recently lived here in Newcastle.â€
â€œDespite our situation, I was seeing the children almost every day, and that is what is most important to me.â€
â€œThings have changed though. My wife decided to move to London to try to boost her career.â€
â€œIâ€™m very comfortable at Newcastle. The people love me and I am very thankful for that.â€
â€œI didnâ€™t want to play for any other club in England, but family issues have forced a change of plan.â€
â€œI have spoken with the Newcastle directors and with the manager and they understand.â€
Solano has claimed that he turned down initial advances from West Ham earlier in the summer, before his children moved south.
With the West Ham situation with Dyer’s unfortunate transfer breakdown, Nobby may have to wait a while â€“ but surely it would be possible to give West Ham the both of them for say Â£8M. But we should only do that if it’s OK with Big Sam. It’s obvious we will need to bring in players to cover â€“ and a better choice for Newcastle may be to wait for January before allowing Nobby to leave.
Solano went on:
â€œThe chances are 50-50.”
â€œEverything depends on West Ham actually making an offer.â€
Solano has a one year contract at Newcastle until next June.
