Viduka prepares to leave Newcastle United

Newcastle United are preparing to part company with 33-year-old Australian striker Mark Viduka. The high-earning frontman currently earns a staggering 5 million in wages alone from the Magpies, but has only played 32 games, scoring 7 goals in his entire Tyneside career.

Toon owner Mike Ashley is desperate to trim his 73 million wage-bill at the club, and off-loading highly-paid players is a priority, it has been reported.

The Australian International is expected to return to his homeland, and join Melbourne Knights, says The Daily Mail.

While Viduka himself has said: 'Ideally I`d love to play another year for Newcastle but if it`s not to be then it`s not to be.'

For the purpose of accuracy, there is no such team as the Melbourne Knights, there is a team named Melbourne victory though. The Knights were the team that Viduka played for prior to moving too Europe, they were [i think] a Croatian or Bosnian club, I believe that the Victory [who are quiet a newish club] have no connections with the Knights ...Just a little bit of info i thought i would share with you

I do like "Dukes" tho, if only he could stay free from injury ??

With playing stats like that I'm surprised you're not positively over the moon about Viduka going! The only player who gets such a high rate of pay / games played is Michael Owen, and at least his scoring rate is better.

He's a fat waste of space, happily see him melted down for glue.
