Bit of a mixed one coming out of the players’ camp today, as Jose Enrique applies a totally non-committal statement regarding his future. In a similar vein to the laid back way he plays, the Spaniard said:

“I have a contract for three years with Newcastle. Nobody wants to play in the Championship, but I`m thinking only of fulfilling my contract.

The team has great resources and I am sure that if things go well from the start we can be a team to match Aston Villa.

I like the city and I am very happy in England, but that does not stop anyone considering an offer that might arrive from another team. As it stands today, I see myself playing next season at Newcastle.”

So he’s here until someone comes in. With the money he’s on it could be a difficult effort to shift him out of his mega-contract.
