Expect Nobby Solano To Rejoin Newcastle

News yesterday that Nobby Solano is now training with Newcastle United.

Nobby Solano – is he coming back?

And the Newcastle coaches presumably have been impressed with both Nobby’s fitness and skills.

Nobby trained at Colchester United recently and was expected to sign a deal there but in the end it seems like both sides decided against it. He is currently without a club after leaving Universitario de Deportes in Peru, but it seems he is not yet ready to hang up his boots.

If there’s one thing we don’t have enough of  in the team, it’s creativity and Nobby can provide some of that.  And he’s not a bad free kick taker either, and it would be a great way for Nobby to see out his career at the club he loves.

He has said more than once that he would like to become a coach at Newcastle United, and if he can secure a short term deal for 5 months, that could become a real possibility.

Maybe Nobby could start coaching our kids as a start, but it’s always good to have our former great players return to the club.

Comments are welcome.

    Nobby’s trumpet’s back in Toon, atleast a few others could learn from the master at crossing the ball and a bit of cover for right back.

    Hughton has just said he allowed Nobby to train as a courtesy – He’s not signing.

    TonyGreenSupreme…yer i read you saying it Dooceys blog…first time some “inside info” has actually been true.

    Anyway Nobbys game was never been about energy or pace…its not like if we signed Jonas at 35, Nobby has always been about quality, vision and technique which does not deteriate.

    Cant see why not giving him another go, everyone always says what a great guy he is to have around and will provide pure quality for our big strikers.

    Geoff, you may well be correct but i would have thought if CH has the chance to sign him he would be an idiot not to, lets hope he aint!!
    Wenger and Fergy are both taking chances on older players, who would have put money on Cambell resigning for Arsenal.
    Don’t p*ss about Chris sign him up.
