Spanish U21 International Xisco is due to return next week to Newcastle, as of course he is still a Newcastle United player and will be reporting back for pre-season training.
Xisco – returns to Tyneside next week
We had reported a couple of days ago that Chris Hughton has to unload Xisco in the summer, and it may not be an easy task for the Newcastle manager, but the lad is just not worth the nearly £50K/week he is reported to be receiving at Newcastle.
Hughton talked about the 24 year-old today:
“He’s had a season in Spain and he’s back with us next week. We’ll see what sort of progress he’s made.”
We suppose it;s good that Chris can take a look at the player, while he arranges his exit from the Tyenside club, because who knows, maybe he’s improved with his time playing back in Spain.
We’d like nothing better if that was the case, but it’s very unlikely.
We expect Chris’ best chance is to get the player out on another season-long loan deal, but he still has 3 years left on his contract and unloading him in the transfer market seems the best solution for the Newcastle club and for the player himself.
