Corresponding The TelegraphNewcastle United are looking to bring Ivan Toney back to the club four years after his sacking.

The striker was a product of the Tyneside club’s academy but the likes of Alan Pardew, Steve McClaren and Rafa Benitez failed to see his potential and ended up swapping St James’ Park for Peterborough.

The rest, as they say, is history. Toney has dominated the Championship and League One and he’s not doing too badly in the Premier League – he’s currently the highest-scoring player outside of traditional Big Six clubs.

Interestingly, Toney said leaving Newcastle was a blessing in disguise when he left but he could now be on his way back.

what was said

Toney spoke up Sky Sports about leaving Newcastle.

“It’s a mind game, if one manager doesn’t want you doesn’t mean another doesn’t want it,” Toney said.

“It’s a blessing in disguise, I came to Peterborough and got my footing back and I’m fine.

“You just have to keep playing and believe that you can get to the top.

“It’s great to have that confidence and that the manager believes you and your teammates are giving you the service that you want.”

Finally finished

Toney was absolutely right that his departure from Newcastle was a blessing in disguise and now he’s finally ready to return to United.

Think about it, if a young Toney had been thrown in at the deep end and endured the pressure of leading the Newcastle line as they battled relegation from the Premier League or attempted to win the Championship, he could have buckled.

With all due respect to Peterborough and Brentford, these clubs don’t feel as much pressure as Newcastle – especially for a striker – but now Toney is ready to take the next step up.
