The sparks are starting to fly a bit with the Santon loan move to Inter-Milan, and his girlfriend Chloe Sanderson has said that Davide did not want to join Inter-Milan, but was pushed out by Newcastle.
Davide Santon – now in Italy at Inter-Milan
Davide had issued a pleasant enough message on his Facebook account earlier today, and thanked the Newcastle fans – but to heck with the pleasantries .
This is what Chloe Sanderson has said today:
And there were even more tweets from Chloe – all of which have now been deleted – here’s some more of what she put out – obviosuly upset about Davide’s mnove:
“This is not just a loan, it’s a loan with obligation to buy.” “Newcastle as good as told him if he stayed he didn’t have a place in the team.”
“They tried to deny it this morning, to keep it on the down low… so other teams wouldn’t put in an offer for JUST a loan, because Davide would have preferred that. To stay in the Premier League, but Newcastle would have lost the guaranteed buy and money.”
“They are a business not a club. And as long as they keep losing players with the passion Davide had..they are killing nufc, and killing the support from the fans who stick around after all the s***.”
OK – so Chloe’s really upset at Newcastle – but many a true word is said in anger – and a lot of Newcastle fans will agree with that last paragraph.
Davide and Chloe have a beautiful baby daughter Sienna – who will be two years old in May – and we had thought this morning that it would be a disruption for Davide to move to Italy, and it looks like it was true what he had often said – that he was very happy at Newcastle.
And it’s not too surprising that Chloe is not too happy, since the family is disrupted quite a bit, and we don’t know if she will move over to Italy with the baby, to be with Davide.

But as we mentioned this morning, Newcastle knew that his contract runs out in a short 18 month time, so it was time to cash in on him – and it looks like he wasn’t going to be offered a new deal to stay on Tyneside.
With Paul Dummett and Massadio Haidara both playing well at left-back, Newcastle obviously think they have enough cover at left back, and it was simply the Newcastle clearing house once again in action.
And we are very likely to see Cheick Tiote leave the club in the summer too.
And would you believe it but I have lost my internet connection at home today of all days, just when Newcastle are expected to sign a couple of stellar players.
Only the first part of that sentence is true. 😀
