Defender Committed To Newcastle – Offered New Contract
With a different Italian linked with the player on a daily basis, Davide Santon’s agent has been forced to make a public statement dismissing the transfer speculation.
In a radio interview in Santon’s native country, Renzo Contratto has insisted that the Newcastle full-back is going nowhere and on top of that, has just been offered a new contract to further extend his stay on Tyneside.
“Davide Santon is happy at Newcastle and the club have just offered him a new contract.
“Are there other clubs interested in him? None of this talk is true – they’re just rumours.”
Two other major factors were persistently ignored in the Santon transfer tales.
Firstly, he has got together with a local lass and they have started a family, with Santon repeatedly stating that he loves living in the area.
Secondly, the full-back’s form really tailed off last season and the sad reality is that he was nowhere near the Italian squad for the World Cup.
So why exactly would top clubs in Serie A be falling over themselves to try and take him back home, especially when he will be on much higher wages compared to your average player in Italy.
I really like Davide Santon and hope that he does stay and that the best use of his talents can be found at Newcastle United.
In Santon and Debuchy we have potentially the best pair of attacking full-backs in the Premier League, IF they are used correctly in the right team/formation.
