‘Gives 110% every game’ – A lot of Newcastle fans on Twitter against potential exit

The Newcastle fans in the Transfer Tavern have been calling for Mike Ashley and Rafa Benitez to rethink whether or not they’ll be selling Matt Ritchie this summer. The fans all love the Scottish international and will be devasted if he does leave the club, as has been much talked about, with journalist Keith Downie providing the latest update on the player’s future on Twitter.

To succeed as a Newcastle player, you don’t have to be the most talented player in the world as long you put in the hard graft and work for the fans then you’ll be well loved. That is something that Matt Ritchie understands and has taken advantage of as his endless work rate has made him one of the most well-loved players in the current crop of Newcastle players.

Football is a cut-throat business though and the industrious winger could find himself being offloaded back to the Championship after just one season back in the Premier League after spending the 2016/17 with the Magpies in the second-tier. Most fans are gutted that Ritchie could be going and even though Andros Townsend could be brought in as a replacement, it’s not enough for the Geordies who have loved what Ritchie’s brought to the club.

As you can see, most fans are keen on keeping Ritchie although if the Scottish international does leave they won’t be against bringing in Townsend as a replacement.
