Last updated : 04 August 2005 By Matt Bottom
Bolton target Francesco Coco is apparently on his way to Newcastle after reports suggested he has flown to England for talks with the northern club.

The Sun claim the Inter Milan full back will arrive on a year's loan to provide competition for the injury-prone Celestine Babayaro.

"Francesco Coco is flying into Newcastle from Italy today for talks," confirmed Newcastle chairman Freddy Shepherd.
