Solano going / Milner arriving

Peruvian international Solano has returned to St James' Park in a £1.5 million deal just 18 months after joining Villa from the Barcodes for that amount. "It's great to be back at Newcastle and I hope we can have a really successful season here," he said.

Meanwhile Milner, who played under
Leeds boss David O'Leary when he was manager at Leeds United, will begin a season-long loan deal at Villa.
