Rodrigo Vilca: Things to Know About the Newcastle-Bound Midfielder

Nolberto Solano remains a cult hero on Tyneside. Making 230 appearances and scoring 37 goals across two spells with the club, Solano was an integral part of the Newcastle team that challenged for the Premier League title in the early 2000s.

And now, Newcastle fans may have found the next Peruvian playmaker to take to their hearts.

Rodrigo Vilca is reportedly on the verge of signing from Deportivo Municipal for around £250,000.

With disarmingly boyish looks and a background in South American football, it'd be easy to compare Vilcar to Santiago Munez of the risible Goal trilogy. Odds on Vilcar dating Anna Friel have yet to be published.

While the 21-year-old would appear to be unknown to everybody outside of his own family, Newcastle fans should look no further to read about their latest acquisition.
