Naxvamdis* to the Khiz kid

Zurab Khizanishvili's ten-minute substitute appearance at the end of Saturday's game with Barnsley - supposedly to shore up the defence, though we duly went on to concede a second equaliser - brought his fleeting Newcastle career to an end, and he's now returned to parent club Blackburn.

The Georgian defender initially looked like a useful loanee, playing particularly well as a marauding right-back as we destroyed Ipswich at Portman Road. But the straight red card against Doncaster - his actions weren't unprovoked, it should be added - and subsequent three-match ban robbed us of his services and he never really got back into the first-team frame.

Fancy a memento of Khizanishvili's unremarkable time in a black and white shirt? Here's just the thing. Not likely to be too many bidders, I'd imagine.

* That's "Goodbye" in Georgian for those of you who can't be bothered to Google it...
