Inter Milan striker Facundo Colido: Newcastle move was close

Inter Milan striker Facundo Colido has revealed he was close to joining Newcastle United this season.

The Argentine is currently on-loan with Sint-Truiden, though admits he also held talks with the Toon.

"I was very close, but it didn't happen because the clubs couldn't reach an agreement," said Colido.

“I would like to return to Inter in June, but I will respect their decision.

"If they want me to go out on loan again, I will welcome it."
