Davide Santon’s girlfriend has claimed that Newcastle United forced the defender to quit St James’ Park.
Geordie WAG Chloe Sanderson, who has a child with Santon, says she is disgusted with the treatment of her man.
According to Miss Sanderson, Santon rejected Inter Milan’s first offer, only for Newcastle to tell him to join the Serie A side on a loan deal, which will be made permanent at the end of the season.
Sanderson blasted the Magpies in a series of tweets, before deleting them.
She wrote: “Just to put it out there, Davide declined Inter Milan’s first offer but was pushed out by Newcastle United to leave.
“Disgusted with how Davide has been treated, fully fit for a while now with no chance to play- a club whose only intentions are to make £££.
“This is not just a loan, it’s a loan with obligation to buy.
“Newcastle as good as told him if he stayed he didn’t have a place in the team.
“They tried to deny it this morning, to keep it on the down low so other teams wouldn’t put in an offer for JUST a loan, because Davide would have preferred that, to stay in the Premier League, but Newcastle would have lost the guaranteed buy and money.
“They are a business not a club. And as long as they keep losing players with the passion Davide had, they are killing NUFC, and killing the support from the fans who stick around after all the s***.”
