Pardew To Experiment With Santon In Pre-Season

26 July 2012 12:52
Alan Pardew says Davide Santon will always play better at left-back rather on the right . even though he is RIGHT footed.

There is still uncertainty over right-back Danny Simpson’s future at St James’s Park, and Santon is expected to move to the right this coming season.

Simpson is out of contract in a year’s time, and talks over a new deal stalled late last season, with the 25-year-old expected to move to Reading or Fulham.

Alan Pardew: “I’m looking at all options.

“There are going to be times when we need to throw people around.

“Davide Santon’s the left-back here – that’s his favourite position – but it might well be that Davide and Ryan Taylor start at right-back and left-back.

“I’m keeping my options open, and pre-season’s a time to experiment, which we are doing. So far, so good.”
