Xisco is returning to Newcastle United.

The Evening Chronicle says Toon are lumbered with £5.7m striker Xisco once again after Deportivo la Coruna were relegated from La Liga.

The Spaniard will now report for pre-season training again with United on July 4.

However, Newcastle manager Alan Pardew vowed to work with the player back in January if his move to Spain did not work out, and he could well try out Xisco in the club's summer friendly programme.
