News today that Newcastle on loan striker Xisco has vowed to return to St James’ Park and prove himself in England.
Xisco – on loan for season at Racing Santandar
Xisco is on a season-long loan with Racing Santander, but the Spanish U21 star has said he does not want to return permanently to Spain at the end of the season.
Xisco said today:
“I’m very happy at Santander and playing with confidence, but I am tied to the Premier League and want to make a go of things there,”
“There is always time in the future to come back to Spain, but I would like to play several good seasons in the Premier League first.”
I have to say that Xisco did have some support at Newcastle, and many though the now 23 year-old was just not given a chance on Tyneside.
My son Neil is one of those, and it’s true Xisco did show some good form last season – but not enough for a player who is said to have cost £6M and was on £50K/week wages.
Xisco has played 14 times this season for Racing Santandar with just 2 goals, and that’s hardly a record that will impress Newcastle.
We don’t think the club will want to pay Xisco’s wages next season, and will hope to sell him this summer, and if that is not possible, then send the lad out on loan to another Spanish club.
Let us know what you think about this development.
