Spanish Clubs Target Toon Star

Spanish Clubs Target Toon Star

Newcastle misfit Albert Luque looks set to be on his way back to Spain with Middlesbrough's UEFA Cup final conquerors Seville the favourites to land him. But it all depends what the Panish international puts top of his list: the chance to rebuild his career at At James' Park ... or a massive pay-cut.

It is known Freddy Shepherd will accept far less than the £9.5m the club paid to Deportivo La Coruna less than 12 months ago, just to clear the decks and raise some money for new signings. And Luque will have to decide what he wants to do.

He still feels Glenn Roeder didn't do his World Cup hopes any good by dropping him from the first team late in the season, and we all know he hasn't settled in this country.

Along with Seville, Deportivo would also love to have their man back, but not at the price they received for him.

I think that we should keep him - alonso for example - 1st season terrible.He shows promise and his attitude seems to be one of determination to show his best - but once again we will sell a player after 12 months when he has played about a total of 4 matches and had his hamstring torn in half - bah and this is the future? - rubbish - cmon freddie - keep players - dont sell half team again and buy 4 or 5
