No Place For Toon Bad Boys!

Nile Ranger and Xisco have been left out of Newcastle United's squad for the pre-season tour of Germany.

Suggesting both players have no future at the club.

The official line is Ranger – who spent the latter part of last season on loan at Sheffield Wednesday – has an "unspecified injury".

Probably something to do with his brain, as he faces ANOTHER two court appearances later in the year.

Xisco – who has played all of his football in Spain over the past three years – will never play for Newcastle again, as long as Alan Pardew is manager.

The 26-year-old was signed by Dennis Wise four years ago and the former Spain Under-21 international has featured just nine times for United since his £5.7m move from Deportivo La Coruna.

But Xisco still has a year left on his contract and Newcastle seem to be stuck with him.

Ideally, Newcastle would have sold him three years ago but no Spanish club will pay his £50,000 per week salary.

So he sorts out a loan deal to play in his native Spain, and STILL gets £50k a week, mostly being paid by Newcastle.
