Solano given permission to leave Newcastle
Newcastle winger Nolberto Solano has set his sights on a move away from St James' Park after deciding he needs to be closer to his children in London.
Solano, in his second spell with United following a stint at Aston Villa, is believed to be a target for West Ham and hopes to have more luck than team-mate Kieron Dyer, who saw a move in the same direction fall through last week.
The Peruvian international said: 'A decision will be made in the next couple of days. It's up to the two clubs but I want to go to London because my wife and two children have moved there.
'Clubs in Spain also want me but I won't go there, I will only leave Newcastle to go to London.
'My wife and I are separated and I miss my children. Sometimes you have to out your family first.'
Solano, 32, also thanked Newcastle boss Sam Allardyce for his handling of the issue.
'Sam Allardyce has been great, he's a great man. I've spoken to him and he says he won't stop me leaving.
'Leaving Newcastle will be hard because I feel they are on the verge of something big here.'
