Not for the first time, Newcastle United’s Italian defender Davide Santon has come out and dismissed rumours linking him with a move away from St James’ Park.

This time pouring cold water on claims that he was giving serious consideration to a move to Italian side Fiorentina.

In the three years since his move from Inter Milan, the versatile player has contributed in over 90 games but he has had none stop stories that he is on the verge of moving back home although with a Geordie girlfriend and a baby to boot, it would be difficult to say where home was now.

Obviously the rumours have persisted though with his former club Inter Milan, Fiorentina and many others been quoted as having an interest.

Santon’s agent backs up the claims that these are just rumours born to unsettle the player by not having told Santon of any concrete interest.

As it happens, Santon is injured anyway with a likely return to action during September or October. The transfer window closes in 16 days, so any move would unlikely to happen this time round.
