In what has been a bizarre past 24 hours, Newcastle have been linked with no less than five new players, three of which are left-backs.
While strikers Jordan Rhodes and Seydou Doumbia have been supposedly been the subject of bids from the Tyneside club, defenders Kieran Gibbs, Guilheme Siqueira and Lucas Orban have all been mentioned as possible new recruits in the build up to Deadline Day.
Now, however, we are being linked with a move for a former flame, Davide Santon, who has failed to live up to expectations in Italy since departing Newcastle last Summer.
The right-back has made just nine appearances for the Serie A side since he completed a permanent move to the San Siro from the Toon in the summer.
And now, according to Ed Aarons of The Guardian , Newcastle are keen to bring the Italian back to England as they bid to sure up their defence in their battle for Premier League survival.
