Newcastle United fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to give their reaction to Sunderland dropping their interest in Davide Santon.

Sunderland have released a statement on their official website claiming that they are not going to pursue their interest in Santon.

According to the statement, the Black Cats could not agree a deal with Inter Milan over the transfer of the 25-year-old defender.

Santon has played in England before, with Sunderland’s rivals Newcastle United. The Italy international full-back was on the books of the Magpies from 2011 until 2015.

The defender did not have a great time at St. James’ Park and lacked consistency. There were moments when Santon looked brilliant in a Newcastle shirt, but he could have done better.

Newcastle fans have taken to Twitter to give their reaction to Santon’s failed move to Sunderland in the summer transfer window.

Newcastle will feature in the Championship next season after getting relegated from the Premier League at the end of the 2015-16 campaign.

As for Sunderland, the Black Cats will be determined not to be involved in a relegation fight in the English top flight next season.
