Xisco's contract terminated by Newcastle

Newcastle announced Thursday that the contract of Xisco has been terminated by mutual consent.

The Spanish striker joined the Magpies from Deportivo in 2008 but failed to establish himself in the first team.

The 26-year-old logged a total of just 11 appearances for Newcastle. Xisco was loaned to Spanish clubs on three occasions, once to Racing Santander and twice to Deportivo, but failed cement a regular first-team place in his native country.
