Milner Happy To Return

Milner Happy To Return

James Milner is enjoying life at Aston Villa, where he is currently on loan, but all talk of him staying there has stopped now that Newcastle are looking for a new manager. The winger insists Graeme Souness failed to get the best out of him by restricting his Newcastle opportunities, and despite saying earlier in the season he would love a move to Villa Park, suddenly he would relish a chance to return.

The England Under-21 international has impressed many this season, but revealed his frustration at life under Souness at St James' Park. Milner is ineligible to play against Newcastle tomorrow due to loan rules, but said: 'You can't really see someone's best form until they are playing every week.

'I'm doing that now and I'm enjoying my football again. It's been a great move for me and it feels nice to be contributing to the team.'

Craig Bellamy wanted a loan deal too, saying he would outlast Souness. He wasn't far wrong, but the Jock off loaded him at the first opportunity. And how Newcastle would be a force to reckon with if they had a strike partnership of Michael Owen and Bellamy. Sadly ... it's not to be.
