Former Newcastle United full-back Davide Santon is said to be on the brink of a return to the Premier League with a number of interested parties willing to meet Inter Milan’s £3m valuation.
Santon initially joined Nerazzurri on-loan in January 2015 before the deal was made permanent in the summer of the same year. Having impressed initially, the 25-year-old then struggled to nail down a regular starting berth – just 11 starts in 2015/16 – and manager Roberto Mancini is willing to listen to offers for the former Italian international. However, there are contrasting reports on where Santon may end up. Gianluca Di Marzio’s website is reporting that the defender is in advanced talks with Sunderland, with a deal set to be concluded quickly. Meanwhile, Sky Italia say that former manager Alan Pardew is ready to pull the trigger and bring Santon to Selhurst Park following his lengthy pursuit of the defender. Thu, Jul 7, 2016 11:13:00 AM

Davide Santon has been loaned to his former club, Inter Milan, for the remainder of the season with the likelihood that the Serie A side will sign him to a permanent deal in the summer.

Santon is still officially Newcastle property, but his days at St. James' Park have come to a certain end. The young fullback was frustrated with his lack of first team action since his return from a long term injury and Santon's girlfriend took to Twitter to burn whatever bridge remained between Santon and the club. Santon was one of the more promising young fullbacks in the world football when Newcastle first signed him, but after three and a half years he is heading back to Italy. Massadio Haidara and Paul Dummett when fit should continue to be the options at left back for the remainder of the season.

Davide Santon suffered a hamstring injury in training, and the fear is that it rules him out for the remainder of the season.

Santon is rumoured to be a target for Serie A side Roma in the off-season, and it would be a shame for his Newcastle career to end this way.

Davide Santon has been ruled out of Newcastle United's match against Crystal Palace. Hatem ben Arfa returns to the squad, but Santon has tonsilitis and is unavailable.

Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa will likely deputize at right back again in Mathieu Debuchy's absence, but that devalues the entire Newcastle defence, including goalkeeper, Tim Krul, for their double game-week.

Davide Santon, along with Hatem Ben Arfa, has been ruled out of Newcastle United's clash against the Hull City Tigers with a knock.

Santon had been doing well - at least for fantasy managers - in a midfield role after being switched there when Yohan Cabaye was sold to PSG. He was even taking kicks. Now that role falls to Vurnon Anita.

Davide Santon has emerged as a doubt ahead of Newcastle United's clash with Manchester City after suffering a knock in the FA Cup against Cardiff.

Paul Dummet and Massiado Haidara will be in line to deputize as full backs for Newcastle, who are already missing Mathieu Debuchy through suspension, and Fabricio Coloccini through injury.

Last weekend saw Davide Santon return to the Newcastle United first team at left back.

That was a rare bit of good news for the Magpies who have Massidio Haidara and Mike Williamson injured, and Steven Taylor suspended for another two matches. In their absence, Newcastle have turned to youngster Paul Dummett as cover.

Davide Santon, who missed the end of last season with a hamstring injury, misses today's season opener as he is "short of fitness".

Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa have moved over to left back, but he's a center half by nature. It will be interesting to see if he can contain Manchester City new boy Jesus Navas on that flank.

Newcastle left-back Davide Santon is recovering from a hamstring injury and should be available when the Magpies return to training 4 July.
