Davide Santon transfer talk played down

Newcastle United defender Davide SantonDavide Santon’s agent claims the player will stay with Newcastle next season, despite strong interest from AC Milan.

The 22-year-old has been heavily linked with a return to Italy and the player has been quoted as saying he would jump at the chance of a move to Milan if they made an approach.

Reports have claimed that Milan could make a move in the summer but Santon’s representative Renzo Contract says it is highly unlikely Newcastle will sell as he is a key member of the side.

“I believe that Davide will remain in England because Newcastle want to count on him next season too,” Contract told Radio Crc. “The club believe that he still has great room for improvement.”

Santon still has over three years to run on his current deal so it will take a large fee to land the player if Newcastle were to agree to a move, which looks highly unlikely.
