Scocco has dropped strong hints he favours a return to South America after failing to cut it in the English Premier League.

“If you ask me, I’ll obviously tell you that I want to play for Newell’s,” he is quoted as saying.

“Newell’s will always be first in my priorities but this time I can’t move a finger to helps Newell´s in a possible negotiation.

“I can only give my opinion if you ask me where I want to go.

“There are things that bother me, for example when I walk through the streets of Rosario and people come to me and say “remember you said that in Argentina you will only play for Newell’s?

“What I am saying is that provided there is a possibility to go to Newell’s, then they will have priority, but if there are no possibilities, obviously I will have to look for second choices.”
