Rossi could stay with Newcastle for the season

Newcastle loan signing Giuseppe Rossi has hinted he could stay at St James' Park beyond January.

The 19-year-old, currently on international duty with the Italy Under-21 side, completed a temporary move from Manchester United to Tyneside on deadline day.

Under the existing agreement, he will return to Old Trafford on January 1, but American-born Rossi has raised the possibility of staying longer.

He said: 'I know I will definitely be a Newcastle player until January, but we will look at it again before then and discuss whether I will stay for the whole season.

'It was decided it would help me and Newcastle if I was to go there on loan, and this was the best solution for me. I will have more opportunities to play with Newcastle.'

Asked if there had been interest from Italian clubs, Rossi replied: 'No Italian clubs came in for me, but I preferred to stay in England anyway because I am settled and I know the style of football.

'I like being in England.'
