Newcastle interested in Santon

Inter's Davide Santon could be heading to the Premier League for Newcastle United, according to reports.

The 21-year-old full-back is pushed to the sidelines at San Siro and spent the last six months on loan at Cesena.

He was an Italy international and considered the heir to Paolo Maldini as a teenager, but has now fallen somewhat by the wayside.

Santon hopes Newcastle United can give him more regular first-team football in the Premier League so he can progress beyond the Under-21 squad.

However, there is also interest from Roma and Schalke 04.
