Once, twice, but not three times a Geordie

Last week the news that legend Nobby Solano was training with us brought inevitable speculation that he might be on the verge of joining the club for the third time - but it wasn't to be, and he's now teamed up with our former assistant manager Nigel Pearson at Leicester.

Having recently played for Sheffield Utd in a friendly against our reserves, he might not have to wait long for another appearance against his former employers, as we travel to the East Midlands for a teatime kick-off on Saturday.

While the ladies of Leicester prepare themselves to be charmed by the trumpet-playing lothario, I'm wondering whether the 35-year-old and his creaking limbs might have found a perfect home at the Walkers Stadium...
