St James’ Park full-back lined with Italian return.
Newcastle United’s Davide Santon could be set for a return to Serie A with Roma, according to his agent.
Santon made the breakthrough with Inter in the peninsula but was unhappy at his lack of first team opportunities and departed for the Premier League two years ago.
Agent Claudio Vigorelli said: “A move for Davide to Roma might be of interest to us. I know they could be interested because they are building a good, young squad under Zdenek Zeman.
“Although everything is fine with us in Newcastle, if the interest of Roma is true then it would be a great opportunity.”

Alan Pardew was lauded for the capture of the former Inter Milan youngster a year ago but there has been much speculation that the 21 year old is homesick, hence the repeated links to a move back to Serie A. The Magpies boss is unlikely to be open to listening to offers for the Italian international.
Santon has started all Newcastle United’s Premier League matches this term and is a player with a bright future and Pardew must hope that the Italian starlet settles well in the North-East or face the possibility of losing the full-back.
Santon has successfully kept Ryan Taylor out of the first team picture this term but still faces a strong fight with the dead-ball specialist for the left-back spot in the Newcastle United first team.
Pardew will not be happy about the comments made by Santon’s agent as they appear designed to unsettle the attack minded defender.
