The 22-year-old has said that he was surprised to hear of the rumours linking him with a move to Stamford Bridge after Jose Mourinho had claimed to be keen on working with him again since their days at Inter Milan together.

Napoli boss Rafa Benitez, who also managed Santon during his own spell in northern Italy, is also thought to be keen on bringing him back home whilst AC Milan have been credited with an interest too.

However, with two years remaining on his contract at St James’ Park, the Italian has said that he is happy to resist the pull of Champions League football for the time being and stay with Alan Pardew’s men after recently forcing his way back into the starting XI.

“He loves it at Newcastle, and loves life in the Premier League,” a source close to the player told the Newcastle Chronicle.

“He is keen to play out the next two years of his contract here at least.”

But with Chelsea looking to swell the ranks in west London over the coming months, Mourinho could still be set to test Santon’s resolve by making a concrete offer.
