According to The Journal today, he would “love to sign” for Newcastle United.

The South American played AGAINST United’s reserves yesterday in a private game at Sheffield United and helped the Blades to a 4-1 win over a young Magpies team.

Solano: “I would love to come back to Newcastle.

“My dream is to help Newcastle United get back to the Premier League.

“They are in a good position to do it and I have made them an offer to help finish off the job in any way I can.

“I think Chris Hughton has done a fantastic job this season.

“And the decision to sign me would be entirely up to him.

“I’ve got a lot of respect for him but the decision is his and whatever one he makes I’d respect it.

“It was strange playing against Newcastle yesterday because there were a lot of youngsters who were just boys when I was at the club and they are all fully grown men now!

“But I decided before the game that I couldn’t bring myself to score against them because I love the team so much.

“I have been enjoying my time back in England and it’s been great to see some familiar faces and former team-mates.

“It would be lovely to think I could finish my career in this country as I still feel I could do a job for somebody.

“Everybody knows how I feel about Newcastle United.

“There is plenty of the season left and perhaps I can play a part somewher.”

* The strangest situation of a player joining Newcastle twice was Mick Harford.

He joined Bristol City in 1981 (from Newcastle), but the Robins couldn't keep up the payments for him.

So he resigned for Newcastle ... for FIVE MINUTES ... so they could sell him to Birmingham City.
