Davide Santon: Pleased to still be in Newcastle

AC Milan were believed to be keeping close tabs on the 22-year-old, as they were considering the future of Ignazio Abate.

Santon has had an excellent campaign for Newcastle, which has seen him recalled to the Italian national side.

And Santon says he will not be following his former Inter Milan team-mate Mario Balotelli back to Lombardy.

Santon told the Evening Chronicle: "At the moment this is the only place to play for me.

"There are not a lot of Italians in the Premier League, just Fabio Borini.

"The Premier League is better than Serie A and better than La Liga. The fans here are the best.

"Playing at Newcastle has also helped me get back into the Italy squad. My coach in Italy is happy with me and so is Mr Pardew. I will keep giving 100 per cent."

f Klopp is available and willing to go there, they have to sign him up. Far better manager than Rodgers. The reason Liverpool fail in so many big games is the inflexible nature of their manager and his inability to find strikers who fit into his inflexible style of play. A feature of nearly every game that the team comes up short is the way the opposition midfield appears to overpower them. It's too easy.

est player award should not go to a player who's second best at all the importent categories (i.e goals, assists etc) just because his team is at the top. If you are not first you are last; if you're second you are the first loser ( looking at you Hazard). David De Gea for POTY.
