There’s some local reports today that Davide Santon is not interested in returning to Serie A this summer, and he wants to stay on Tyneside, and battle for his place in the side, and wants to see out the remaining two years of his five year contract.
Davide Santon – wants to stay put at Newcastle
A big reason for that is that Davide has a young family on Tyneside, and a Geordie girlfriend, and he has no plans at all to move from New castle.
The Chronicle is reporting that sources close to the 23 year-old say he has talked to manager Alan Pardew, who assured him he will be allowed to fight for his place in the Newcastle side next season, with local; lad Paul Dummett and Massadio Haidara also looking be the starting left back at Newcastle.

Injury has interrupted his season, and after a good start to the season when Newcastle managed to get to 6th place after Boxing Day, he had a couple of disastrous games, which saw Alan Pardew replace him with Paul Dummett, and Davide is out for the season with a hamstring injury.
Newcastle will already lose a number of players this summer, some who are only too quick to get to the Newcastle exit, but we will need to retain a good core of the players and then bring in maybe six good players in the transfer window.
With our terrible form and results this year, if we don’t do that then Newcastle could be fighting relegation next season, so the summer is now going to be a critical transfer window for Newcastle United.
