According to a report on ESPNsoccernet, NewcastleÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s James Milner has handed in a shock transfer request.
The 22-year old has been long linked with a return to Aston Villa, where he spent the 2005/6 season on loan and has also been mentioned as a possible solution to Liverpool’s winger problem.
A club statement said, ‘The club is very disappointed that James sees his footballing future as being away from St. James’ Park. He is a valued member of the squad and it is only a year ago that he signed an improved long-term contract.’
‘We have yet to receive an offer for James that has matched our valuation of him. However, should such an offer be received then the Club would be reluctantly forced to consider it, given James’ apparent desire to leave.’
