Newcastle are to announce striker Patrick Kluivert is leaving the club after just one season following his transfer from Barcelona.

The club had an option to sign the 28-year-old for a further two years, but did not take it up.

Kluivert has no shortage of admirers in Spain and he will return to the country to pursue his career.

He told the News of the World: “I am going back to Spain and not Turkey.”

Kluivert arrived at Newcastle on a free transfer from Barcelona last summer.

He has started only 14 Premiership games, with 10 appearances from the bench, scoring six league goals.
