Newcastle United striker Jimenez Tejeda Xisco, a £5.7m summer signing from Deportivo La Coruna has reiterated his desire to break into the Magpies first-team and to stamp his name in English football.

The 22-year-old who has only featured in a handful of appearances for the Magpies since making his deadline day move from Spain is currently out with a toe-injury, but looks to return in the next couple of weeks to aid the Toon in their fight for Premiership survival.

He said: “I have broken my big toe and I`m out for four weeks. My injury is a blow because the manager started to count on me.

“Everybody told me this change [of leagues] would be beneficial to me, but, as I almost never play, I haven`t been able to find out.

“But I have experienced worse situations. No pain, no gain. I believe I will succeed in England. Besides, you learn a lot from such a situation.”

United Managing Director Derek Llambias has already stated that Xisco had not been bought for the ‘current season’ and that he was ‘one for the future’ so, expect a lot of Xisco next season.
