Duo return to Newcastle

Newcastle United today confirmed that Matty Longstaff and Rodrigo Vilca are back at the club after loan spells at Aberdeen and Doncaster Rovers respectively.

Hopes were high that Longstaff could use a loan to force himself back into the first team at St James’s Park, however, he only made five appearances for Aberdeen in a disappointing spell in Scotland.

Vilca, on the other hand, has had a bit more success in League One.

The Peruvian has made 13 appearances, scoring twice and even comparing himself to former Magpie Nobby Solano during his time at Keepmoat Stadium.

Speaking in September, Rovers boss Richie Wellens said: “I think you can see he’s quality. It’s just that last little detail.

“He receives the ball really well and reminds me of a player I played with from Peru called Nobby Solano.”

Ramsey’s farewell to Juventus

Aaron Ramsey is about to say his farewell to Juventus, according to reports in Italian media.

Speculation about Ramsey’s future in Turin has recently intensified, with Newcastle and Everton apparently interested in the Welshman’s return to the Premier League.

As picked up in the Star of the day, La Gazzetta dello Sport report that Ramsey will return to the club on Monday to say goodbye to his teammates ahead of a planned Juventus departure.

Ramsey’s salary is a stumbling block that could deter clubs from moving for him in January, with Juventus likely having to pay a percentage of his salary if the midfielder leaves on a loan deal.
