Routledge wants Toon return

BY foxsports • April 14, 2011

Routledge joined QPR on loan in January and has helped them to cement their place at the top of the Championship. Neil Warnock has made it clear he wants to keep the winger at Loftus Road and insinuated a deal was already done, but the player's agent Will Salthouse says the 26-year-old is heading back to Newcastle at the end of the season. "Wayne's going to come back to Newcastle United in the summer. There's no deal in place between QPR and Newcastle," he told The Journal. "There's an option of a permanent move as part of the deal but nothing has been agreed at the moment and he's looking forward to returning. "He'd like to come back to Newcastle United and show what he can do, to be honest, but obviously if Newcastle don't want him then it is difficult for him. "But at this moment in time he's looking forward to coming back and trying to fight for his place at Newcastle. "He's enjoyed his time so far and has two years left on his contract, so he's certainly not looking to move on unless Newcastle want him to."
