Nobby Solano's return to Newcastle United sums up frustrating window so far
Nobby Solano's potential return to Newcastle United for a third spell has underlined just how tricky the transfer window this month has been so far for Chris Hughton.
Solano, whose move to Colchester didn't come off, has been training with the Mags since Friday and even at 35 he could offer Hughton a real option.
Hughton is not going to get big money to spend this month and is unable to wheel and deal as he can't afford to lose anybody else due to the paper thin nature of the squad.
Jermaine Beckford's snub today was the second kick in the teeth for Newcastle this month.
And there is every chance there could be a third in the shape of Danny Simpson around the corner.
Should Solano prove he still has what it takes even at 35, he could offer Newcastle some vital cover on the right and his ability to play right-back could also be a massive boost if Simpson fails to stay on at St James' Park.
However, after Newcastle were linked with Michael Chopra earlier this month then Gary Caldwell and now Nobby, it just shows that if anything United have been forced to go backwards when long-term future planning is surely the key at United.
WOULD NOBBY SOLANO BE A GOOD SIGNING FOR UNITED?
