Smoggies Sign Ex-Toon Star

Smoggies Sign Ex-Toon Star



Distin rejected the offer of a new deal at Eastlands, and his existing deal has less than 12 months still to run.

He had a year at St James' Park in 2001 when he signed on loan from Paris St Germain. Although the deal involved an add-on that he could join the Magpies after the loan, he decided to join Kevin Keegan's Manchester City who offered him higher wages.

Graeme Souness tried to tempt the 28-year-old back to Tyneside before he signed Jean-Alain Boomsong from Rangers, and the deal almost came off. Many Toon fans wish it had!
